The All Ireland Scholarship Scheme, which is funded by JP McManus, provides financial support to high achieving students from low income households. The scholarships were first awarded in the Republic of Ireland in 2008 and became available in Northern Ireland in 2009. This is the eleventh year they are available in Northern Ireland.

The scholarship offers students financial support of £5,500 per annum for the duration of their course.

Twenty five scholarships will be awarded to students who attend a grant aided post primary school or a further education college in Northern Ireland. The scholarships will be awarded to the top nineteen* performing 'A' level students in post primary schools, and the top six performing Level 3 Extended Diploma students in FE Colleges.

Applicants must be in receipt of the Education Maintenance Allowance (EMA) at time of application, and due to commence an undergraduate course in university in 2020.

The deadline for receipt of applications is 4pm Friday 26 June 2020.
