The bursary aims to provide support for socio-economically disadvantaged students from groups traditionally underrepresented in higher education, including:

  • Socio-Economic groups that have low participation in higher education
  • First time mature students
  • Students with a disability, particularly students with a physical/mobility impairment or students with a sensory disability, students who are deaf/hard of hearing, or students who are blind or visually impaired
  • Irish Travellers
  • Students entering on the basis of a further education award
  • Lone parents with a DSP means tested Social Welfare payment
  • Ethnic Minorities

To be eligible to apply for this bursary, students must be able to demonstrate that they are socio-economically disadvantaged and that they come from at least one of the groups above.

In 2018 – 2019, eight bursaries of €5,000 per annum for the duration of a student’s undergraduate degree are available to MIE students.

Applications are invited from students entering MIE in September 2018, for full or part-time degree programme of greater than 2 years’ duration.
