The Gist:

We run an app called GrantFairy which makes it easy for you to find funding for your studies, and we would love for you to use it.

We do our very best to ensure that our app and all of our information about grants, bursaries and scholarships are as up-to-date as possible, but you should be aware that scholarship details may change from time to time, and that newer versions of the app may not be 100% compatible with everyone’s phone. Please don’t blame us if you find a problem — let us know so we can fix it.
