Leinster G.A.A. Student Bursary Scheme 2011/2012

Friday, September 30, 2011

The GAA National Student Bursary scheme is now in its fifth year. It is open to members of the Association who are attending a full-time Higher Education course (except those who hold another GAA-related or college scholarship/bursary) and who are active participants in their Higher Education club. 

The schemes are administered by the respective Provincial Councils and recipients will again be selected based on a range of criteria, including their playing, coaching or administrative commitments to the GAA. A number of awards in each province will be reserved for those excelling in the areas of coaching and administration. 

Applications for the scheme will be considered by a sub-committee in each province; each bursary granted will be for €1000 and payment will be made annually in two instalments of €500. Please note that recipients in 2011/12 may on occasion be asked to make themselves available to assist with different initiatives coordinated by Leinster GAA during the year. 

Students applying to Leinster GAA from Leinster Third Level Colleges must be an active member of a GAA Club in Leinster. 

The closing date for applications is the 14th of October 2011 and all applications can be sent to the following address
