Please apply through this link to be directed to the qualtrics form for the AUS Grants form. Applications to all grants are done through qualtrics.
Your applications will be processed on a first-come-first-serve basis. We will check the qualtrics every week and process any applications within that week. However, if you submit your application during the weekends, we will consider that as part of the following week’s application. We will not send you any emails right after you submit your application but we will update you once we have processed your application, especially the amount of money that you have been granted. In cases where you did not receive any emails, please contact the email addresses written on the general overview section.
Please have a look at the documents in the tabs below for the description of each grant and apply through the Qualtrics form.
