2019 FAQ's

Question Answer

We review our applicant guidelines at the conclusion of each award cycle. They are then amended to include previously unforeseen scenarios and to provide generally improved clarity. Pending that review process the above answers are for ongoing guidance. Please note that if you have already submitted an application that may be affected by any of the above answers there is no need to re-submit and your application will be assessed against the original 2019 applicant guidelines.
