Single Parents


As from January 2017, single parents who are themselves following their studies on full-time basis at a Post-Secondary, Higher Secondary, Vocational and Tertiary level of education, must apply for Supplementary Allowances using the online application.  This is important since single parents relying on social benefits are automatically eligible for Supplementary Allowances.  By submitting an application as described above, single parents would also be applying for the Single Parents’ Benefit.


Students wishing to communicate with the Students' Maintenance Grants’ Office may send an email using the online application itself, or by sending an email to address​.​


The Single Parents’ Grants are credited in a staggered process. This extra annual grant is established by Legal Notice 308 of 2016 and given as one lump sum to eligible students around beginning of first days of Second Semester.


In order to safeguard the sensitivity of these cases, all emails received are directed to a representative of the Students’ Maintenance Grants’ Board, who will be contacting back the students individually. 


The Students’ Maintenance Grants’ Board reserves the right to verify the information submitted and request additional information and/or documentation if necessary.
