UNLOCKING POTENTIAL, REALISING AMBITIONS
Uversity’s Scholarships are for adult learners who wish to complete a Bachelor’s (Ordinary or Higher) Degree, for the first time, that will help transform their lives and the lives of those around them. Scholarships enable successful candidates to pursue a degree, in any discipline, in selected institutions on the island of Ireland. Preference is given to candidates enrolling on full-time programmes. Part time or blended programmes will also be considered.
The Scholarships comprise financial support and programming throughout the course of the degree. There are two levels of financial support available depending on whether or not the successful candidate has dependent children:

€7,000 dependent children
Scholarships are awarded based on online written application, successful interview and on demonstrated financial need.
The scholarship is payable per annum for the duration of the Scholar’s chosen degree, up to a maximum of 4 years.
Payments are made directly to the scholar through monthly instalments over the course of their degree. All payments are subject to the Scholar’s compliance with Uversity’s scholarship agreement, continued registration and progression to the next academic year.
