The objective of the Fund is to provide financial support to both Full-time and Part-time undergraduate or postgraduate students in need of such support. The fund is intended to support students whose participation in higher education would otherwise be at risk as a direct result of financial difficulties.

The Fund supports students who are experiencing difficulty in meeting the day-to-day expenses associated with attending college, or who encounter unforeseen circumstances ressulting in short or longer-term financial difficulties, (e.g. family difficulties, bereavement, accidents or health problems).

 

Application to the Fund is open to Full-time and Part-time registered students on courses of not less than one year's duration leading to an undergraduate or postgraduate qualification.

 

  • Students who link into a semester
  • Students on courses that do not lead to an undergraduate/postgraduate qualification, such as Foundation or Access courses
  • International students are not eligible for the Student Assistance Fund and are advised to contact the International Office if in need of financial support
  • Non University of Limerick Erasmus students are not eligible for the Student Assistance Fund and are advised to contact their own institution if in need of financial support
