Terms and Conditions for Scholarship recipients

This document outlines the Terms and Conditions for all scholarships, grants and awards administered by University College Cork. There is additional criteria that varies for each scholarship and this will be detailed for each scholarship listing.


Eligibility Criteria

Scholarships are awarded based on established eligibility criteria. The eligibility requirements for each scholarship are outlined on the UCC Scholarships & Prizes Website.

Enrolment requirements

All scholarships are awarded on the basis that you will maintain an enrolled status in your course of study in UCC. Your scholarship may be terminated and you will be required to repay the funds if your enrolment status becomes inactive.

Grounds for scholarship termination

Where the awarding of the scholarship is based on continuous high academic standards, the scholarship may be withdrawn if the recipient failed to maintain satisfactory academic progress.

Scholarships are not transferable by the recipient/applicant.

Scholarships may only be deferred under exceptional circumstances and such request will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis.

Holding multiple scholarships

You may be permitted to hold the title to more than one scholarship. Students who are offered more than one Scholarship for the same achievement will accept subsequent scholarships on the basis that the bursary award from the highest valued scholarship only will apply.
