Encouraging participation and success in higher education
The 1916 Bursary aims to encourage participation and success by students who are most socio-economically disadvantaged and from groups most under-represented in higher education.
Who is the 1916 Bursary for?
Any students entering year 1 of an undergraduate programme,
full or part time, with a household reckonable income of less than €25,000.
Please note, this is equivalent to the SUSI Special Rate of grant which has 3
thresholds based on how many dependent children are in the household. Less than 4 = €25,000; 4 to 7 = €27,400; 8 or more = €29,702. The income threshold
increases by €4,950 per additional person in college.
Can I apply?
To be eligible for a 1916 Bursary, all applicants must meet, Financial, Priority Group and College Entry eligibility criteria.
Previous Bursary Recipients
“I was a full-time working mother and a lone parent. I had always wanted to be a social care worker. I wouldn’t have been able to continue this course I was doing if not with the help of the 1916 Bursary.”
