This section is for full-time students only.
Applications for Student Assistance Fund 2021/2022 will open in October 2021 at a date yet to be confirmed.
The Student Assistance Fund provides financial assistance for full-time higher education students who are experiencing financial difficulties whilst attending college.
The Student Assistance Fund (SAF) is managed by the Higher Education Authority (HEA) on behalf of the Department of Education and Skills (DES). The SAF is allocated to higher education institutions (HEIs).
In general, the SAF has a dual focus and is designed to support students from socio-economically disadvantaged backgrounds with ongoing needs for financial support AND provide emergency financial assistance for other students.
Please note that students requiring financial assistance to help with tuition fees, repeat learner fees or registration fees cannot be considered under the Student Assistance Fund.
To help applicants fill out the Student Assistance Fund application we will run workshops which will give you a step by step guide on what is expected on your application. The workshops will take place over Zoom and you can find all the details below.
Each session will run for 45 minutes starting at 12.15pm on each date listed.
