UL40 Mature Student Scholarship Scheme

The University of Limerick (UL) encourages and supports the participation of mature students on all of its programmes. UL recognises and acknowledges the increasingly challenging economic environment which students face, in particular those who are entering college as adult learners to undertake full-time study. The UL40 Mature Student Scholarship Scheme offers some financial assistance to adult learners commencing higher education on a full-time basis. A total of 10 scholarships, worth €2,000 each, are available.


The scheme is open to all first year mature students who meet the following criteria:

  • Registered in first year of a full-time undergraduate degree programme.
  • Meet both the nationality and residency criteria for the free fees initiative as set out by UL's Fees Office.
  • A first-time entrant to higher education i.e. has not previously achieved a third-level qualification.
  • Is not in receipt of any other bursary or scholarship.

The UL40 Mature Student Scholarship Scheme is now closed for this academic year.
