SAF still accepting applications for this academic year

LYIT is delighted to inform our students that the Student Assistance Fund (SAF) is still open and accepting applications for the academic year 2020/21. 

The SAF provides financial support to full- or part-time students who are experiencing financial difficulties while attending college.  Students can apply for the SAF to help with either temporary or ongoing financial difficulties.  The SAF is designed to provide a source of financial support in addition to a SUSI grant.

The Student Assistance Fund is available to help with costs such as:

  • books and class materials
  • rent and other utility bills
  • food
  • essential travel
  • childcare costs
  • medical costs.

The above list is not exhaustive; however, it is important that the nature of the expenditure for which assistance is being provided is clearly identified.  We look forward to your application.
