The GAA have again reiterated their commitment to the ongoing educational development of its players and members by announcing details of the 2017/2018 GAA National Student Bursary scheme.
Now in its eleventh year, the scheme is open to members of the Association who are attending a full-time Higher Education course and are not on any other form of scholarship.
They do need to be actively involved in GAA in their education establishment and there is a special focus this year on those involved in coaching and administration within their communities as well as just those on the field of play.
To date the GAA has invested over €2 million in the ten years that the Bursary Schemes have been in existence.
The schemes are administered by the respective Provincial Councils and recipients will again be selected based on a range of criteria, including their playing, coaching or administrative commitments to the GAA.
Each bursary granted will be for €750 with the final amount yet to be confirmed in Ulster.
The closing dates for applications is Friday October 6th.
Stay tuned to Sport for Business for a special series coming up soon looking at the role of sport within the College life of a number of our education members.
Trinity College Dublin, Ulster University, UCD, Griffith College and IT Blanchardstown are among the more than 220 organisations that play an active part of the Sport for Business community.
