As in 2020, a number of faculties and schools will not be accepting applications in 2021. The PRSS funding allocation for these faculties and schools will be distributed among all currently enrolled students in their cohort who meet the eligibility requirements.
When applications close for the other faculties and schools at 11:59pm on 23 May 2021, HDRAC will assess the eligibility of all students and provide this information to the PRSS committees in faculties and schools prior to payments being made.
The University PRSS eligibility requirements apply to all students. Your faculty or school may specify additional, stricter eligibility requirements in the faculty or school guidelines. You need to review these guidelines to ensure you understand all eligibility requirements, regardless of whether your faculty or school is accepting applications or equitably distributing funds.
