I am currently on Back to Education Allowance. Another student in my class gets a PLC maintenance grant, would I qualify for this?
The Maintenance Grant is available to PLC students & is a contribution towards day-to-day living costs and is paid directly to eligible students through nine monthly instalments over the course of the academic year.
Maintenance grants are paid at an adjacent and non-adjacent rate. Students must ordinarily reside over 45km from where they intend to study to be eligible for the non-adjacent rate.
Tuition students and students in receipt of a BTEA (Back to Education Allowance) or VTOS (Vocational Training Opportunities Scheme) payment are not eligible to receive the maintenance grant so the answer is no in your case.
