NCI Sport Scholarship Students.
The scholarship initiative is an investment in student potential, which endeavors to tailor performance based components with financial support so students can maintain a dual focus on academic and sporting progression.
Sports scholarships are reserved for full-time registered students who have reached or have the potential to reach a very high level of performance competing at International, National, Inter-provincial or Inter-county level.

How to Apply
Applications are now closed. If you have made an application you will be notified of your application status in the next two weeks.
Full-time international undergraduate registered students on a 3-year programme who have reached or have the potential to reach a very high level of performance competing at International, National, Inter-provincial or Inter-county level in Ireland can avail of the Sports Scholarship.
The Sports Scholarship can be used in conjunction with another NCI scholarship. The total amount of sporting and academic scholarships a student can receive may be capped in certain cases. Students who receive funding from an external sporting organisation, such as Governing Bodies, can still avail of the NCI Sports scholarship.
