Sanctuary Scholarships 2020 open for application: deadline extended to May 5th 2020
UCC's Sanctuary Scholarships is in its third year and helps address the cultural and financial barriers to accessing third level education faced by asylum seekers and refugees in Ireland.
The 2020 UCC undergraduate (Level 8) Sanctuary Scholarships process is now open. Application forms, information on application process and more about how to apply is available on the UCC Equality, Diversity and Inclusion webpage here.
Sanctuary scholarships are open to asylum seekers or refugees who are not eligible for the state Free Fees scheme, SUSI grants and/or the state pilot support scheme (documentation of status will be required).
The EDI Unit recently announced that the deadline has been extended, allowing for the disruption caused by COVID19. The new closing date is 5 p.m. May 5th 2020 (extended closing date).
