Do I really have to submit another application for sponsorship?
The answer is simple…..YES! If you are expecting to get sponsorship for your studies, it is your responsibility to make sure that you have a new application submitted for the appropriate deadlines.
The only time that you don’t need to submit a separate application is for Winter —- this means that if you started the school year in September and are scheduled to continue through to the end of the regular school year (April of the next year), then you don’t have to submit a separate application for Winter; your application submitted by the June 1st deadline will cover you for both the Fall and Winter.
What if I missed the deadline to apply?
What if I am just starting my studies in the winter semester?
What if I started and completed my regular school year (September-April) AND I want to continue for the summer?
What if I am not sure that I want to start or continue my studies at college or university yet?
What if I only want to attend on a PART-TIME-BASIS?
