A registered charity that funds scholarships for adult learners is looking for fresh applicants for its 2020-21 programme.

Uversity is currently accepting applications for its 2020-21 Higher Education Scholarships for Adult Learners until 1 March.

Cork recipients Sarah Hurley, Ciara Hicks, and Karol Lapot are currently pursuing bachelor’s degrees after they were awarded scholarships by Uversity.

Ciara and Karol are studying Applied Psychology at UCC and Sarah is enrolled on the Social Care Programme at CIT.

Uversity’s scholarships provide multi-annual financial support for recipients to pursue a bachelor’s degree for the first time. The programme allows them to attend participating third level institutions in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. Scholarships can be in any subject area and are tailored to recipients’ financial circumstances to cover the costs associated with higher education.

Applicants must be 23 years or older, and a citizen of an EEA member state or Switzerland. Applicants must also be a resident in Ireland or Northern Ireland for three years or more by 1 January of the year in which they are applying for a scholarship.

They should be returning to higher education after a break of three years or more or have recently completed a higher education progression/preparation course. Successful applicants must apply to and be offered a place on a bachelor’s programme for 2020/21 in participating institutions on the island of Ireland.

Successful candidates must also be able to demonstrate academic potential and ambition for returning to education. They will also need to demonstrate a strong work ethic and financial need for the scholarship. Uversity is particularly keen to support candidates who have an ability to be transformed and transform others as a result of this scholarship and educational experience.

All applications will be reviewed by Uversity for eligibility and may be shortlisted for interview. Successful candidates will be notified by 1 July.
