Does anyone know what the standard grant threshold is? Are they referring to the 'Standard rate-25% maintenance' or something else?
The current cut off rate for the std rate 100% is €41,110
The current cut off rate for the std rate 25% is €47,205
BUT the income limits are going to change anyway
Maybe contact your local TD and ask them to submit a parliamentary question something like this:
Could the Minister clarify his answer to Deputy Eamon O'Cuiv on 6th March 2012 regarding fee grants for postgraduate students what he means by "There will be a new income threshold for this payment which will be lower than the standard grant threshold." Specifically - is the standard grant threshold relating to the 100% rate or the 25% rate?
