Dear University of Strathclyde,

To Whom It May Concern,

I am writing to request information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.
I understand that I do not have to specify particular file or document names and it is the relevant department's responsibility to provide the information I require. If you need further clarification please contact me by email.

I would like the information to be emailed to me in electronic form at the following email address: [email address]

If you cannot provide the complete responses to my requests within the scope mentioned below, please provide what available information you have and an explanation for why you cannot provide the data requested.

I ask that you justify all omissions by reference to specific exemptions of the act.
I reserve the right to appeal your decision to withhold any information or to charge excessive fees.

If there are any omissions under Section 21 of the act, I would politely request that the information is clearly signposted in the response to my request, in the interests of accessibility.

As the information requested in i. and ii. has already been compiled, and recently at that, I would hope this would avoid any omissions under Section 12.

I would be grateful if you could confirm in writing that you have received this request. I look forward to your response within 20 working days as outlined by the statute.

Information Requested:

i.
Full financial disclosure of income and expenditure for the following “Scholarship & Funding Opportunities” for the current academic year (2020/2021) and the last academic year (2019/2020):
