Written answers (Question to Education)

The decision on eligibility for a student grant is a matter for the relevant grant awarding authority. I understand from Student Universal Support Ireland (SUSI) that the student referred to by the Deputy is a renewal student in the 2013/14 academic year and that SUSI have recently been in contact with the student in relation to the submission of a renewal application for 2013/14.
