The Paddy Dooley Rowing Scholarship has been established through the generosity of the Dooley family. The family, who are from Limerick, decided to establish the scholarship in honour of their father, who captained the Irish Olympic eight, in the 1948 Olympic Games in London. The awarding of the scholarship, which encompasses all undergraduate academic disciplines, will be based on rowing promise and Leaving Certificate results or academic performance.
The recipient must represent the University of Limerick in rowing competitions, achieve performance-related goals set by the ULRC and contribute towards the development of rowing in UL. The Scholarship is for €2,500 and is open to full-time students from any year of undergraduate study at the University of Limerick. The scholarship is awarded on a yearly basis and any recipient is entitled to reapply for the scholarship in subsequent years subject to satisfactory academic progress and the student continuing to represent the University in rowing competitions.
Candidates must be Irish citizens or be permanent residents in Ireland (as defined by the University Finance Office).
