University of Limerick has announced that it will offer another €88,000 worth of scholarships to high performing students who will begin their studies in the 2013/14 academic year.
The scheme will award scholarships of €2,000 each to 40 high performing undergraduate students and four mature students for the coming year.
The UL40 scholarship was first put in place last year to celebrate the university’s 40th anniversary. However, it has now been decided that it will be kept in place for students who begin studying in the university this coming autumn.
It will be awarded to incoming students based on their performance in the Leaving Certificate.
All CAO applicants will be automatically included in the selection process provided they have not already received a scholarship or bursary from the university.
The scholarships for mature students will be determined by their academic performance throughout their first year of study.
The scholarships are on offer across all disciplines including nine scholarships for each faculty of Science and Engineering, Kemmy Business School, Education and Health Sciences, and Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences. There will be two scholarships for the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance.
