Student Assistance Fund
The 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 provides financial support to students experiencing short or long-term financial difficulties while attending higher education.
Assistance Fund is managed by the Higher Education Authority (HEA) on behalf of
the Department of Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and
Science. The Student Assistance Fund in
LYIT is overseen by the SAF committee
comprising the Access Officer, the Chaplain, the SU Welfare Officer and
the SAF Administrator

Laptop Loan Scheme
LYIT is delighted to be in a position to help our students by lending laptops in the coming academic year.
As part of the package of COVID supports for higher and further education institutions, the Department of Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science
has allocated funding to support disadvantaged students in the higher education sector in accessing ICT devices.
However due to the limited number of laptops, priority will be given to 1st Year Students – 1st come 1st served.
The Online Application Form is available
Note that students in receipt of the SUSI Grant/Social Welfare payments or students in need of support who can provide the P21 form will be prioritised.
