Don’t miss final chance to submit 2017/2018 student funding applications

Renfrewshire MSP Derek Mackay has joined Student Awards Agency Scotland (SAAS) to remind any students who have not yet submitted their 2017/2018 funding application, to do so before the 31st March deadline.

With just a week to go until SAAS closes for this academic session there are still a number of students who have yet to apply.  If these students do not submit their applications and supporting evidence by 31 March 2018 they risk receiving no funding.

SNP MSP Derek Mackay said:

“The Scottish Government is committed to supporting students throughout their education.

“I would not want anyone to miss out on the funding and support they are entitled to. Therefore, anyone who has not applied for their 2017/2018 funding or tuition fees should do so now.”

SAAS Chief Executive, Paul Lowe, said:

“At SAAS we want to make sure that all students receive the funding and tuition fees that they’re entitled to.  I urge students to visit our website www.saas.gov.uk to submit their applications and supporting evidence as soon as possible. It is vital that fully completed applications for 2017-2018 are received by 31 March 2018, to ensure that all funding is paid.”
