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. We are aiming to be the Go-To University for Sport in Ireland. We are developing a new performance strategy to enhance our support and sharpen our edge.
The UCC Sport Scholarship programme is divided into two main strands:
(1) UCC Individual Sport Scholarship – which is divided into three levels: Gold, Silver and Bronze. The Individual Sport Scholarship is open to applicants involved in team sports or individual sports other than the core sports.
(2) UCC Core Team Sport Scholarships which covers Hockey, Rugby, Soccer and GAA which incorporates Gaelic Football, Hurling, Ladies Gaelic Football and Camogie.
