There are at least two steps to the application process:

(2) Meet the published eligibility criteria: Bermudian and registered for at least one course during the  semester.

Determination of Need

Financial information is requested and must accompany the application to support the determination of need. A financial worksheet is provided to help document sources of monthly income and expenditure. A completed worksheet must be submitted along with the application.

Definition of a financial dependency

An applicant is financial dependent regardless of age if another party has primary responsibility for financial obligations such as housing, food, household bills, etc. In these instances, the financial worksheet must include the information of the person responsible for the financial obligations as well as the applicant where applicable.

Applicants may be required to share supporting documentation (pay advices, financial assistance letters, standard bill statements, etc.) to verify information contained in the financial worksheet. Any documents shared will be returned to the applicant once verification is completed.
