AIT has operated a sports scholarship scheme since 1996 for students who have reached, or have the potential to reach, a very high standard of performance in their chosen sport. Under the scheme, approximately thirty full and half scholarships are awarded each year, up to the value of €4,800 over four years. Each scholarship is awarded for a period of one year, but may be renewed for up to a maximum of four years. Students pursuing higher study after the four year threshold will be considered for additional years.
Sports scholarship payments are generally made in two equal instalments during the academic year, the first in December and the second after the recipients have completed the final examinations in semester two. Sports scholarship recipients must adhere to the institute’s sports scholarships regulations, a copy of which may be obtained from the Sports Department.
The closing date for applications is normally early July of the year of entry. Further details of the scheme may be obtained from your local school/college or directly from the Sports Department on + 353 (0)90 642 4539.
