Connacht GAA have again reiterated their commitment to the ongoing educational development of its players and members by announcing details of the 2016/2017 GAA National Student Bursary scheme. Connacht GAA, in support of the National Student Bursary Scheme, will award bursaries of €750 to students attending Higher Education colleges.
The scheme, which is now in its tenth year, will be open to members of the Association who are attending a full-time Higher Education course and who are active participants in their Higher Education club. Students who hold other GAA-related or a college scholarship/bursary will not be eligible to apply. Connacht GAA welcomes applications from those students in our province, (Galway, Leitrim, Mayo, Roscommon & Sligo), regardless whether their attendance is at a college inside or outside of Connacht”. A number of awards in each province will be reserved for those excelling in the areas of coaching and administration.
Each bursary granted will be for €750 and payment will be made annually in two instalments of €375. Further information and application forms for this year’s scheme are currently available to download from www.connachtgaa.ie
