The University of Limerick has awarded 40 first year students €2,000 entrance scholarships for the third year running.
The entrance scholarships, which are offered to students who began their undergraduate studies in the Autumn Semester for the Academic Year 2014/15, were established in 2012 as the University celebrated its 40th Anniversary. The decision has been made to extend the offer of entrance scholarships beyond the UL40 celebration year.
Speaking at a special Scholarship Award Ceremony Professor Paul McCutcheon, Vice President Academic & Registrar of the University of Limerick said “These scholarships were inaugurated to celebrate over 40 years of academic endeavour in UL. The University has grown expansively into an internationally renowned university and continues to produce talented and high calibre graduates. The entrance scholarships are an ideal way to support a number of entrant students in beginning their academic lives”.
