I’m doing my Leaving Certificate this year and plan to go to college in the autumn. How do I apply for a student grant?
Student Universal Support Ireland (SUSI) awards higher and further education grants to people living in Ireland.
You complete an application form online to apply to SUSI.
You must have an online account with SUSI before you can make your application. SUSI accepts grant applications for the 2021-2022 academic year from 22 April 2021.
You can use SUSI’s eligibility reckoner to see whether you meet the criteria for student grant funding.
If you are refused a grant or are approved a grant at a rate that you don’t think applies to your situation, you can appeal the decision in writing to SUSI. You must appeal within 30 days of getting your decision.
If you are living in direct provision or are in the international protection system, you can apply for support under the Student Support Scheme for Asylum Seekers.
