Applications must be made in writing on the forms provided. No application will be considered which is not supported by a recommendation from the candidate's parish priest or other equivalent person (e.g. university chaplain).
Awards are made twice a year in January and June. However, in exceptional circumstances, provided they have funds available, the Committee will consider applications at other times.
The Committee is happy to respond to enquiries made in writing or by email about the suitability for a grant of a proposed course, as long as this precedes the application. Please note that we are unable to respond to telephone requests for information or application forms.
The Committee welcomes supporting information about the courses, communities, experiences etc. for which candidates are applying and will use these in their decision making.
