What is the 1916 Bursary Fund?

The 1916 Bursary Fund is a targeted funding scheme established by the Department of Education and Skills to support implementation of the National Plan for Equity of Access to Higher Education 2015-2019. The National Access Plan is working to increase the numbers of students who are currently underrepresented in higher education.

The Bursary is being offered to socio-economically disadvantaged undergraduate students commencing third level education in September 2018 for the first time - and will fund the entire duration of a student's programme of study.
