Aoife, a recipient of the WIT President's Scholarship, says that she is loving English at WIT and knows that she made the right CAO decision
Aoife Molloy, a past pupil of St Mary's, New Ross, Wexford, is one of 4 students at Waterford Institute of Technology (WIT) to be awarded a President's Scholarship for 2018/2019.
The 1st year student is studying English as part of the Bachelor of Arts (Hons) degree.
Extra curricular activities
In her scholarship application she outlined the extra-curricular work that she was involved in in school, including the Amber Flag initiative, Comhairle na nOg, Green Flag, and choir. She also outlined the activities she was involved in outside of school, such as local musicals and youth film projects. She also detailed the excitement she would feel at coming to WIT.
Aoife explains why she applied for the President's Scholarship: “I was excited to be involved with the student ambassador programme in WIT, and to be able to connect with the community like I did in school. I'm really loving English at WIT and know I made the right decision.”
Her dreams for the future include: to work creatively, wherever she can.
Each year up to five exceptional undergraduate students are awarded scholarships with a total value of up to €12,000. Each President’s Scholar receives an annual bursary of €2,000 per year of study along with €500 per semester. President’s Scholars will also be part of the Student Ambassador programme for the duration of their studies, representing the college and the Academic School in which they study.
The application process has four stages. People cannot apply for the scholarship unless they have applied to the CAO and have chosen a WIT course.
