The decision on eligibility for new student grant applications from the 2012/13 academic year is a matter for the new centralised grant awarding authority, SUSI (Student Universal Support Ireland).

The student referred to by the Deputy had her application cancelled by SUSI as it was incomplete. On 22nd November, 2012 a letter was issued by SUSI to the student informing her that her application was cancelled and advising her to reapply.

When re-applying for a student grant it will be necessary for the student to complete all sections of the application form.
