Renewal Applications

Student grants awarded under the Student Grant Scheme are reviewed each year. You must renew your application for each year of your course. For example, if you held a grant from SUSI in 2021/2022 and are continuing your studies on the same course in the 2022/2023 academic year, SUSI will be in contact with you by email to advise you to renew your grant application.

However, please note that if you have;

  • completed a previous course (e.g. a three year level 7 course) and are applying for a one year add on course for the current academic year 2022/2023 (e.g. a level 8, one year add on), you will need to  make a new application.
  • decided to change your course, your college or are starting a new course you will need to make a new application.

To renew your grant application you should;

Step 1 Apply

  • Log into and hit the “Apply Here” button on the SUSI home page;
  • Hit the “Log into Online Grants System” button;

  • An Award Letter (if no further documentation/action required on your part);
  • A Refusal letter (detailing the reason(s) for refusal); and
  • A Checklist letter requesting new supporting documents, (if any are required)

If you receive a letter stating

  • Refused: this letter is issued to you stating you are refused a grant. This letter will also highlight the further steps you may take if you wish to request a review or appeal your grant decision. These steps are also outlined in the Review Your Grant Decision and or Appeal Your Grant Decision processes; and
