Connacht GAA, in support of the National Student Bursary Scheme, will award bursaries of €750 to students attending Higher Education colleges as part of its ongoing commitment to Player Welfare.
The scheme, which is now in its seventh year, will be open to members of the Association who are attending a full-time Higher Education course and who are active participants in their Higher Education club. Students who hold other GAA-related or a college scholarship/bursary will not be eligible to apply.
Connacht GAA welcomes applications from those students in our province, (Galway, Leitrim, Mayo, Roscommon & Sligo), regardless whether their attendance is at a college inside or outside of Connacht”.
Each bursary granted will be for €750 and payment will be made annually in two instalments of €375. Further information and application forms for this year’s scheme are currently available to download from www.connachtgaa.ie or HERE
Senior Intercounty players who were on their County’s Senior Panel in 2013 should apply for Bursaries via the Gaelic Players Association; further information at www.gaelicplayers.com.
