The 1916 Bursary Fund was announced by the Minister for Education and Skills in December in 2017 to encourage participation and success by students from sections of society that are significantly under-represented in higher education. Over the next three academic years, the 1916 Bursary Fund will be awarded to 25 first-year ITT, DIT and ITB students with each receiving a bursary in the amount of €5,000 for each year of their undergraduate programme of study. The fund is open to full-time and part-time students from under-represented socio-economic groups who meet at least one of the following criteria: 

  • First -time, mature student entrants;
  • Students with a disability;
  • Irish Travellers;
  • Further education award holders;
  • Lone parents;
  • Ethnic minorities (including programme refugees);
