A UNIVERSITY is marking its 40th anniversary this year by offering scholarships worth €2,000 each to 40 students who will begin their studies next autumn.
The scholarships for the University of Limerick (UL) will be awarded to students based on their performance in the Leaving Certificate.
All CAO applicants will be automatically included in the selection process provided they have not already received another bursary or scholarship from UL.
The scholarships will be offered across all disciplines with nine ear-marked for each of the four faculties.
There will also be two scholarships for the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance and two for inter-faculty programmes.
Professor Paul McCutcheon, vice president, academic and registrar at UL, said: "The UL40 scholarships are an ideal way to recognise UL's academic achievements."
