If you want to apply for the third phase of GLAS, you should ensure your advisor submits an application on your behalf by the deadline, Thursday, December 15th.
More than 14,500 applications have been made for GLAS 3 so far, with almost 95% either Tier 1 or Tier 2.
If your application has been prepared, saved and validated and the correct actions chosen, it should be submitted as soon as possible to avoid the risk of slow internet connection, which may inhibit the submission of applications closer to the deadline.
