Existing Grant Holders

Only students in years 3 and 4 who have applied via their local authorities will continue with the following process of receiving grants

  • Submit Grant Applications to your relevant Grant Authority (G.A.) by end of August to ensure instalments are sent to the University of Limerick (UL) on time.
  • Grant cheques usually come in 3 instalments a year as follows: October/November, January/February, April
  • Late Applicants will not receive instalments at the times mentioned above.
  • Ensure that personal details submitted to G.A. correspond with details submitted to UL e.g.: Name - If in Irish with G.A., ensure it is in Irish with us at UL.
  • Address - The home address given to the G.A. must be the same as that given to UL.
  • Please ensure the bank account is in the students' own name, If it is not the bank will return the cheque to SAA. If your grant arrives to SAA and we do not have Bank Details for you, it will be returned to the Grant Authority.
  • If your granting authority is paying you through EFT (Electronic Bank Transfers) please ensure to forward bank details to them directly.
  • It usually takes 7 working days for cheques to be processed and money to appear in student accounts from when cheques are received by Student Academic Administration. This is due to the large volume of cheques received and the processing required.
