All students who apply and are accepted under this scheme receive an extra grant together with their stipend. Students need ONLY apply if they are currently receiving a stipend and have particular financial difficulties. Students who have applied and were accepted in previous year/s should apply again every year at the beginning of the academic year.
Students must present documents to support their claim. Documents vary according to individual circumstances. A list of documents needed can be found here [PDF].
Kindly note that:
- Decisions regarding applications under the Supplementary Scheme are not taken by the staff of the Stipends Office at the University of Malta. Such decisions are taken by the Maintenance Grant Board.
- Kindly note the Board will not approve applications if the household income exceeds €11,000 per year.
- Applications for the Supplementary Grant must be submitted to the Stipends Office with a supporting set of documents as indicated above. This can be done either by:
o Physically bringing the form with a supporting set of documents to the Stipends Office OR
o Filling the online form (here) and sending it to email@example.com, attaching the supporting set of documents required. If you have all the supporting documents in place, the application should not take more than 5 minutes to complete.
- Once the applications have been reviewed by the Maintenance Grant Board, each student will be informed of the Board's decision via an official letter. Such letters are sent approximately between the months of November, December and January - depending on when the application was initially submitted.
