The Student Assistance Fund (SAF) is co-funded by the Irish Government and the European Social Fund as part of the ESF Programme for Employability, Inclusion and Learning 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
