Key Dates and Deadlines

When it comes to applying, there are five deadlines to choose from. We recommend sending your application prior to the deadline. That way you avoid the rush and get ahead with the process.

So the sooner you apply, the better. Applying early will give you more chances to earn a scholarship as well.
