Education bursaries from Kildare County Council

Kildare County Council is offering three education bursaries which are designed to provide an opportunity to study at third level to persons who may not be in a position to undertake a course of study because of serious disadvantage or disability. These bursaries are as follows:

The William G Carroll Bursary is mainly, but not exclusively, for third level courses in the field of community development.

The Kildare Education Bursary for People with Disabilities is for any third level course.

The Kildare County Council Memorial Bursary for Deis Schools is for any third level course being undertaken by a former student of a Deis School.

Applications are invited from persons living in County Kildare who wish to undertake a degree course at a recognised third level institution in Ireland. The course applied for must be at undergraduate level. Bursaries are not normally available for Post-Leaving Certificate courses or Post-Graduate courses, but will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Qualifying for a Higher Education Grant will not serve to act as a bar to the award of a bursary.

Application forms can be obtained at either the Customer Services Desk of Kildare County Council or at the Community & Culture Department Reception on floor 7.

Completed applications should be submitted to Community and Cultural Section, Kildare County Council, Level 7, Áras Chill Dara, Devoy Park, Naas, Co Kildare. W91 X77F. The closing date for applications is Friday 8 September 2017 at 5pm.
