The Foundation does not fund retrospective applications. Their meetings are usually held in February, April, June, September and December. Therefore if you are making an application for an academic year beginning in the autumn, it is best to get your application to the Foundation for their June meeting at the latest. Then if they have further questions, which they often do, there is still time for you to supply the information.
