What is the 1916 Bursary Fund?
The purpose of the 1916 Bursary is to encourage participation and success by students who are most socio-economically disadvantaged and who are from groups most under-represented in higher education. To be considered for a bursary, applicants must meet College Entry, Financial and Target Group eligibility criteria. Each college has a limited number of bursaries; they will be awarded to the eligible applicants that present the greatest need.
What is the value of a 1916 Bursary?
There are three different types of bursaries – Tier 1, 2 and 3.
Tier 1: €5,000 per year for the normal duration of an undergraduate programme – or up to a maximum of six years for a part-time programme.
Tier 2: €2,000 per year for the normal duration of an undergraduate programme – or up to a maximum of six years for a part-time programme.
Tier 1 & Tier 2 bursaries will also be paid if the awardee progresses to postgraduate study.
Tier 3: Awardees will receive a once-off bursary of €1,500 for the 2022/23 academic year only.
Who can apply for a 1916 Bursary?
Any students entering year 1 of an (undergraduate) programme in the academic year (2022/23), full or part-time, with a household reckonable income less than €24,500 in 2021, who are in the identified target groups, can apply for the bursary.
