Connacht GAA Bursary Awards 2017/2018

Connacht 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. 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 eleventh 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.
