GAA Players who have applied for a postgraduate place at Mary Immaculate College (MIC) are being encouraged to apply for the MIC GPA Scholarship scheme.
The scholarship, which is held in conjunction with the Gaelic Players Association (GPA) is open to any GPA member who applies for, and is accepted, to one of MIC's postgraduate programmes in Education and the Liberal Arts.
Two scholarships are available annually, at least one of which is awarded to a female player.
MIC will contribute a whopping 50% of the successful applicants' fees, while the GPA will contribute the remaining 50%.
As well as achieving the honor of receiving the scholarship, the successful applicants will play an active role on MIC's football, camogie or hurling teams and will act as ambassadors for their sport within the college community.
Limerick footballer Pádraig de Brún and Limerick camogie player Caoimhe Costello were chosen as the inaugural MIC GPA Scholars for the 2021/22 academic year.
Interested applicants can inquire about the scheme and make their initial scholarship application by submitting their CV and cover letter to [email protected].
Deadline for receipt of completed programme applications is Tuesday 31 May. Eligible scholarship applicants should apply to their desired programme through the normal procedures.
