Applications for the Student Grant Scheme open today.

It’s hoped the earlier opening date will allow for the quicker acceptance of applications and lead to faster decisions and greater certainty for students.

An extra 4 million euro has also been allocated to support the most vulnerable groups wishing to access higher education.

SUSI processed 103 thousand 300 grant applications for the last academic year and it’s expected a similar number will apply for support for the coming year.
