All applications will be considered individually.  It will always be helpful to have a supporting letter from a third party who knows you in a formal capacity.  Depending on your circumstances the third party could be a social worker, support worker, college tutor, sports coach, etc. (If you are applying for an award to meet personal/living expenses a supporting letter is usually a requirement). It will assist us and speed up the processing of your application if you organise a letter of support before you send your application to us.
