Munster GAA Student Bursaries 2022/2023

27 Sep 2022

The GAA’s Student Bursary scheme funds are allocated by its Provincial Councils. Some elements of the Bursary scheme are common across the provinces; other elements are left to their discretion.

National Student Bursaries Scheme 2022/2023


The GAA have again reiterated their commitment to the ongoing educational development of its players and members by announcing details of the 2022/23 GAA National Student Bursary scheme. The scheme is open to members of the Association who are attending a full-time Higher Education course (except those who hold another GAA-related or college scholarship/bursary) and who are active participants in their Higher Education club; to date the GAA has invested over €1.5 million in the time that its Bursary Schemes have been in existence.


The schemes are administered by the respective Provincial Councils and recipients will again be selected based on a range of criteria, including their playing, coaching or administrative commitments to the GAA. A number of awards in each province will be reserved for those excelling in the areas of coaching and administration.

Applications for the scheme will be considered by a sub-committee in each province; each bursary granted in Munster will be for €750. Further information and application forms for this year’s scheme are available to download from provincial council offices and respective websites. All completed forms should be returned to the Munster Games Managers by October 10th, 2022.


Senior Intercounty players who were on their County’s Senior Panel in 2022 should apply for Bursaries via the Gaelic Players Association; further information at
