I'm a returning student who has received the maintenance grant last year. However, when I re apply this year for the grant it isn't put through for some reason. I just came off the phone from SFE and was told it was because I haven't applied for the loan.
I didn't apply for the loan last year as I don't need anymore then I have. What I'm wondering is this new? do I have to apply for the loan every year in order to receive the grant. I've called them about 3 times and only one person mentioned this to me, so I'm not sure about this.
I'd appreciate some advice.
Even more elitist than everyone thought?
