The Stuart Mangan scholarship has been established to honour the life and memory of this young athlete by making it possible for those who suffered paralysis while competing in sport to participate in educational programmes at the University of Limerick for periods of up to four years.

The purpose of Scholarship is to focus on candidates who may lack the financial resources to attend university and for whom the lack of such resources represents an apparently insurmountable obstacle.

The scholarship will provide funding grants of up to €25,000 per annum to address the obstacles which may be preventing a paralysed sportsperson from fulfilling their educational potential.
