If you have any players in your club who are interested in a course in Athlone Institute of Technology I’d appreciate if you could pass on the following information to them.
AIT has operated a sports scholarship scheme since 1996 for students who have reached, or have the potential to reach, a very high standard of performance in their chosen sport.
Under the scheme, 97 scholarships were awarded for the 2015-2016 Academic year. The Scholarship now operates in two schemes. A gold Scholarship includes a payment of €1,000, in addition to free use of our sports facilities, physical therapy, functional screening assessments, cookery demonstrations, study skill support, nutritional advice and sports psychology. An Academy level scholarship does not include a cash payment but includes each of the supports listed above.
Each scholarship is awarded for a period of one year, but may be renewed for up to a maximum of four years. Students pursuing higher study after the four year threshold will be considered for additional years.
The closing date for applications is Monday 5th of September 2016.
The application form can be downloaded on the following link:
