Eligibility for Free School Meals and University Applications Watch
I am currently completing a university specific application and one of the questions I must answer is if I am eligible for free school meals. I currently attend a private school with a 100% bursary but I know that I would be eligible for free school meals if I attended a state maintained school because of my parent's income and also because my siblings received free meals. So I was wondering if I should check the box that says I am eligible, or if the fact that I attend a private school negates my eligibility.
We would recommend you speak to your university if the application is specific to funding that they offer.
