Student Assistance Fund

ScholarshipsThe Curve helps students from low income families and those who traditionally have not progressed to third level study or those from areas of high unemployment to access higher education.

This help includes financial aid such as the Student Assistance Fund. This limited fund may be available to students who are experiencing financial hardship and is advertised on the student notice boards.

Third Level Access is co-funded by the Department of Education and Skills and the European Social Fund as part of the ESF Programme for Employability, Inclusion and Learning 2014-2020.


Application Process

If a student thinks they may qualify, they should complete an application form. They will then have an interview with the Access Officer, the Chaplain and the Student Welfare Officer to determine their eligibility. Qualifying students will be required to provide proof of expenditure.

The application form can be found here for financial support.

The Curve may also be able to provide you with additional academic, personal and social supports. For further information contact Brian McGonagle by e-mail or call +353 (0)74 918 6170.
