The BGLC Education Grant is not paid directly to students. BGLC disburses the Grant to your school. Your school will then adjust your account to reflect the credit for tuition fees.
If your school advises that you do not have any balance due for tuition fees because of having earned another scholarship, then the Grant would be forfeited and allocated to another needy student.
Yes, as long as you have not received the Grant more than two times.
The BGLC Education Grant is issued only for 1 year and is not recurring. Students must reapply each year.
If you have deferred your studies for the semester, you automatically forfeit the BGLC Tertiary Education Grant and will have to reapply in the subsequent year.
The BGLC Education Grant may not be used for any other expenses.
