Who is eligible?

Eligibility for a student grant is based on annual family income.

For a family with fewer than four children the income limit is €41,000 for a full maintenance grant. Families on up to €47,000 can get part maintenance.

Income thresholds are higher for families with four or more children.

Students with parents on slightly higher incomes may be eligible for a grant to have fees paid.

The maintenance grants range from €305 up to almost €6,000, depending on family income and the distance of the family home from the college.
