The Minister for Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science has introduced a Covid-19 Once Off Emergency Allowance of €250 for SUSI and higher education students.
The majority of eligible students have had their €250 either refunded to the original source of payment where fees have already been paid in full, or their outstanding fee reduced by €250.
We hope to have all grants processed by 28th February 2021.

There is an ongoing outbreak of a novel coronavirus that originated in China and has spread to other countries, including in Europe. The HSE Health Protection Surveillance Centre is monitoring the situation and updating www.hpsc.ie regularly.
Most cases of coronavirus appear to be mild, with those more severely affected already suffering underlying health conditions that leave them more vulnerable to respiratory conditions.
The safety and wellbeing of the IADT community is, and always will be, our highest priority, and we have carefully considered the official advice available to us, and our responsibility to ensure the welfare of our students, staff and visitors. We will keep the community updated regularly as the situation changes.
Further information is available on the HSE website.
The government has announced additional measures to protect citizens by delaying the spread of COVID-19.
The general public is asked to follow this advice and keep informed of this ongoing outbreak.
