Financial Aid Fund


Scholarships available:


In conjunction with UL Student Life and the Postgraduate Students’ Union, the University administers two types of financial aid. The Financial Aid Fund is supported by gifts from UL Alumni through the UL Foundation’s Alumni Annual Fund Appeal and through UL Student Capitation. This scheme is designed to help students who experience short-term financial problems. If the student qualifies for assistance, she/he will receive an interest-free loan. This loan is repayable in full prior to graduation.

Additionally, student parents who are experiencing financial difficulties can apply for a Childcare Bursary to support them with their childcare/child-minder costs. If a student is experiencing financial difficulty and wishes to apply for either type of funding, she/he is encouraged to call to Teach Fáilte or Room CM071 to meet with the chaplain, or alternatively, the student can email to make an appointment.

Any postgraduate student wishing to avail of either type of funding can email for an appointment. Application Forms and further information are available from the Welfare Officer in the Students Union or the Student Information and Support Coordinator Jenny Blake, email or the PSU President in the Stables Courtyard.
