UL has recently launched a new and exciting Sports Scholarship scheme that will aim to be the leading scholarship of its type in Ireland. The UL Sports Scholarships are designed to support top athletes in pursuing and excelling in their sport while also undertaking academic study at the University of Limerick.
The scholarships are awarded at Gold, Silver and Bronze levels, and can have a value of up to €10,000 at the Gold level. The scholarship award includes a training grant, coaching support, performance and sports science services, and accommodation and registration contributions depending on the level of the award.
The scholarship programme will also include a number of dual-career workshops and supports designed to help our scholarship athletes manage successful sporting and academic careers. UL has a unique combination of some of Ireland’s best facilities, coaches, athletes and sports scientists in one location, supporting the development of World Class performance and UL sports scholars will benefit from the great facilities, people and experience we have to offer in helping young athletes develop successful dual careers.
The scholarships are open to all current UL students or those who are applying to come to UL for the first time either through CAO or transferring at undergraduate or postgraduate level.
Applicants must be a member of a national governing body of sport recognised by the Irish Sports Council, in the sport in which they are applying for a scholarship. You can find out more on the UL Sports Scholarship website.
