If you are awarded a Grant, you will be informed of the amount, which may be anything up to the full sum you requested. That Grant will be available to you for a year from the date it is offered. If it has not been used by then, it will be withdrawn.
Once you have decided where and when you wish to make use of this money, you should make a booking at the place of residence.
If you are planning to stay at Hawkwood College, email the dates of your agreed booking to the Trust and we shall pay the Grant directly to Hawkwood at the time of your stay, leaving you to pay the balance of the bill.
If you are planning to stay elsewhere, we shall need to contact the place of residence in advance to make the necessary arrangements. For this reason, we ask you to give us at least four weeks’ notice of all the details. We shall need the name and email address of the place, and the dates of your stay. This is to allow us time to contact them and set up instructions to pay the Grant directly at the time of your stay, leaving you to pay the balance of the bill. Please send an email with all the details.
Please note that the Trust will not pay deposits, nor make any payments whatsoever in advance of a stay. It will not reimburse any payments which you make, but will only pay the agreed Grant allocation 1] to the place where you are staying, and 2] on the day of your arrival. And the Trust will only pay towards the accommodation and food costs of your final bill.
Please also note that VAT will not be added to the Grant and will need to be included in the total bill if charged.
You will not be able to make a subsequent Application until the first Grant has been used and a Report sent on your stay.
