Student Grants and Funding

SUSI is now open for new and renewal grant applications for the academic year 2017/2018. To apply for, or renew your higher education grant please go to https://susi.ie/   

Students who have applied for a SUSI Grant but who have not yet received a letter confirming eligibility, may be required to pay €1,638 until their grant position is clarified.  Proof that they have made an application will be requested. Any payment, less the €138 Student Levy, will be refunded if a grant is subsequently awarded and when the University has been notified of the award by SUSI. Should no award be forthcoming any balance outstanding must be settled before 31st January 2018.

The Student Assistance Fund (SAF) is co-funded by the Irish Government and European Union under the European Social Fund Human Capital Investment Programme 2014-2020.  It provides financial support to students who are in financial difficulty and whose participation at university would be at risk without support. The Fund is best described as a contributory payment which helps students meet some of the extra costs associated with being at university. Registered students do not necessarily need to be grant holders to apply for funding.

 

Applications are means tested and funding is targeted at those students who are in most financial need. 

 

Funding is available to all full-time registered students of the Pontifical University attending an approved course. Full details of the Fund are available at  https://www.maynoothuniversity.... Details of approved courses are available at

The college will claim full year Free Fees for this year from the department of Education and the student will be liable to pay full fees  upon taking up a course in  the future.

Students who withdraw before October 31st are charged an administration fee of €250 in addition to forfeiting the non-refundable deposit paid.

 

Students who withdraw after October 31st but before January 31st are charged half of the fee.
