ACI 1st round: 1st round nominations are made in February, with decisions made by the III panel in March, and results announced by the School's Financial Support Office in April. Alongside awards, the ACI panel lists a school-wide 1st round reserve ranking. This means that if any ACI scholarship offers are declined before the 2nd nomination round begins, they are re-offered to the next-ranked reserve candidate in the School-wide reserve list.
ACI 2nd round: 2nd round nominations are made in May, with results announced by the School's Financial Support Office in June.
It is also vital for applicants to understand the application deadline for those who would like to be considered for ACI scholarships at any point in the funding process is 17 December. Those who apply after 17 December are not eligible for consideration in the 2nd ESRC nomination round.
