ANOTHER €88,000 worth of scholarships has been announced by the University of Limerick to mark its 40th anniversary.

UL will continue the €2,000 entrance scholarships, offered to 40 high performing undergraduate students and four mature students, who begin their studies in the academic year 2013/14.

Professor Paul McCutcheon, vice president academic & registrar at UL (pictured), said the scholarships “recognise and reward academic achievement and supports students as they embark on the exciting new phase of discovery at the University of Limerick.”

The UL40 Scholarships will be awarded to incoming students based on their performance in the Leaving Certificate determined by their CAO points. All CAO applicants will be automatically included in the selection process provided they have not already received another bursary or scholarship from UL. Four additional scholarships are available for mature students and are awarded based on academic performance in year one of their studies at UL. The scholarships are on offer across all disciplines including nine scholarships for each faculty of Science and Engineering, Kemmy Business School, Education and Health Sciences, and Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences. There will also be two scholarships for the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance.
