UL Launch High Value Sports Scholarships

Posted on February 24, 2017

The University of Limerick has launched a new suite of Sports Scholarship designed to support elite athletes in pursuing and excelling in their sport while also undertaking study at the University of Limerick.

There are three levels of award, Gold, Silver and Bronze with a value of up to €10,000 at the Gold level. Scholarship holders will benefit from support in the areas of accommodation, registration fees, sports science, coaching and mentoring. The scholarships scheme is open to all current UL students, all current Leaving Cert students or those 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.

The University of Limerick has long been known as “Ireland’s Sporting Campus” supporting the development of many of Ireland’s leading sportspeople for over 40 years.  Speaking about the UL Sports Scholarships UL Vice President Academic and Registrar Professor Paul McCutcheon said “UL has always been a leader in sport in Ireland.

The campus boasts some of the best sports facilities in Europe and together with our leading sports academic programmes, elite coaches, sports scientists, accommodation and athlete support systems, UL has a track record in developing world class talent in a wide variety of sports.   We are proud that so many Olympians, World and All Ireland Champions have chosen to study at UL and we have worked hard to support them in achieving both their sporting and academic potential while at UL.”

“Like any athlete we want to continue to improve and now UL students will have access to one of the best sports scholarship packages available in Ireland in the best possible training and study environment.”

Applications for the UL Sports Scholarships are open to all current leaving certificate students and news entrants for the 2016/17 academic year as well as all current UL students here.  

The closing date is the 1st of July 2016
