UNLOCKING POTENTIAL, REALISING AMBITIONS
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.
The Scholarship will cover some or all of the following costs:
- Registration & tuition fees
- Pre-enrolment education assessments if required
- Laptop, books and other materials
- Wifi and telephone access
- Childcare/Family support
- Living expenses e.g. accommodation/maintenance etc.
Scholarship amounts will vary depending on the recipients’ circumstances and will be allocated on a needs basis which will be assessed via application and interview. Payments will be made on a phased basis over the course of the degree programme and be subject to continued academic registration and progress.
