Uversity’s Scholarships are intended to unlock adult learners’ potential. By providing multi-annual financial support, Uversity’s Scholarships aim to remove the financial barriers to pursue a Bachelor’s degree for the first time.  Scholarships are not limited to particular subject areas and will enable individuals 23 years or older to complete a Bachelor’s degree in one of the participating institutions in the Republic of Ireland or Northern Ireland.

Uversity understands that there are many financial barriers preventing people from realising their ambitions to receive a Bachelor’s degree.  Aside from the direct costs of tuition, fees, books and IT there are day to day living costs such as childcare and transport to be taken care of to enable full-time education. Uversity Scholarships take account of each individual’s circumstances and aim to provide financial support for the entire period of study.

Scholarship amounts will vary depending on the recipients’ circumstances and will be allocated on a needs basis which will be assessed via Uversity’s application process. For Republic of Ireland applicants, Uversity’s scholarships are currently considered reckonable income for means-tested social welfare benefits and SUSI grants. Offers will be subject to Uversity receiving an income disregard so that these benefits/grants are not adversely affected.

Payments will be made over the course of the degree programme and will be subject to continued academic registration and progress.

All applications will be reviewed by Uversity for eligibility and may be shortlisted for interview.  Successful candidates will be notified by 1st September 2019.
