Application forms are sent from the Access Office to guidance counsellors and principals in eligible second level schools and FE colleges in January of each year.
The application form can be printed from the website (form appears below).
A limited number of scholarships are available in any one year. As the number of applications always far exceeds the number of scholarships available, short-listing will apply. All applicants will be informed of the status of their application by the end of June 2017.
Each scholarship is worth €1,500 per annum for each year that the student is at DkIT on a programme no longer in duration than four years. Continuing eligibility for the scholarship requires a satisfactory progression and attendance record at DkIT.
The decision of DkIT is final in all matters. The decision to award a scholarship and to stipulate criteria is entirely at the discretion of DkIT. The scholarship may be withdrawn from an individual at any time if it is found that any aspect of an individual’s application was misleading or false. Late and/or incomplete applications will not be accepted. DkIT reserves the right to seek additional information as may be required.
Applications will only be accepted from those whose family income does not exceed €35,000 per annum and who have attached evidence of application to the CAO by 1st February to the application form.
