The All Ireland Scholarship Scheme

Applications are closed for the 2018 scheme.

The All Ireland Scholarship Scheme (Northern Ireland Awards) gives 25 scholarships per year to top-performing students for the duration of their undergraduate degree course.

The 25 scholarships are awarded across two categories:

  • grant-aided post-primary school students
  • Further Education (FE) college students

Grant-aided post-primary school students

Nineteen scholarships are awarded to the top performing A level students from grant-aided post-primary schools. A minimum of two scholarships are awarded in each county of Northern Ireland, based on the students' home addresses.

You must also be getting Education Maintenance Allowance (EMA) to be eligible.

If you’re studying A levels at a post-primary school, you can apply for the scheme through the Council for the Curriculum, Examinations & Assessment (CCEA).

Further Edcuation college students

Scholarships are awarded to the top Level 3 Extended Diploma students from FE colleges, with one scholarship being awarded to the top student in each of the six FE colleges.

You must also be getting EMA to be eligible.

If you’re studying a Level 3 Extended Diploma at an FE college you can apply for the scheme through Colleges NI.
