Sports Scholarships

UCC SPORTS SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAMME 21.22

The UCC Dept. of Sport and Physical Activity has a long established Sports Scholarship Scheme in place. We have remodeled our Sport Scholarships in line with our new Strategy for Sport   and our performance strategy to enhance our support and sharpen our edge.

(1) UCC Individual Sport Scholarship –   The Individual Sport Scholarship is open to applicants involved in team sports or individual sports other than the core sports.  The sport/sporting organisation must be recognised by Sport Ireland.
