After you apply
Once you submit your application, we will send you an email (or letter, if you applied by hardcopy) acknowledging receipt of your application.
After you submit your application, we first check it meets the eligibility criteria.
Applications are then assessed by a peer panel against the stated assessment criteria and applications are rated and ranked in relation to each other.
Once decisions are made, we will notify you of the outcome by email or letter. It usually takes up to 12 weeks after the closing date for the decision to be announced.
