Confirming study details for scholarship and award recipients
StudyLink does not have the functionality to send automated VoS requests or receive automated VoS responses for these scholarships.
Where a VoS response is received for a Student Allowance or Student Loan, this VoS can be applied onto the scholarship. However, if a VoS response is received for a scholarship, this cannot be applied to a Student Allowance or Student Loan.
Where the student does not have a Student Allowance or Student Loan, or StudyLink needs a VoS response for a scholarship before the Student Allowance or Student Loan is ready to send a VoS request, then the request will be issued manually.
Scholarship VoS requests are issued via fax, with one page per student. The VoS request contains the same information as an automated VoS request, and the response should contain the same information as an automated VoS response.
The VoS requests will continue to be issued until a response is received.
