The Society of St. Vincent de Paul recognises the importance of further education, however, for many people accessibility and affordability are real barriers to obtaining a third level education and training.
The SVP Education and Training Bursary Fund has been established to support students of all ages who may financially struggle to access or stay in third level education and training programmes.
The Bursary Programme will consider all recognised third level education and training programmes for funding. However,postgraduate studies (Master or PhD) or private colleges are not eligible.
Students must demonstrate that they have applied for all available state funding or other grants. Information on other sources of funding is available on the Student Finance website.
If you would like more information on how you can apply to the SVP Education and Training Bursary Programme, you can contact your Regional office.
Please note, bursary awards are dependent on funding availability.
