As a postgraduate student at DIT, there are a number of funding options available to you. Below, we’ve outlined the most popular options.
Higher Education Grants
Since September 2012, postgraduate students have made their online application direct to SUSI. The newly appointed body for student grants in Ireland, SUSI (Student Universal Support Ireland) operates an online grant applications system you can access at studentfinance.ie.
Sponsorship by Employers
It is possible to get sponsored by your employer to pursue postgraduate studies by research within the Institute, or to attend a postgraduate course. Arrangements should be made with your employer and the contact person in the relevant School or Research Centre of the Institute.
The work you complete may be related to a problem identified by your employer as being of particular interest to their business.
Funding – International Students
Many International students studying in Ireland are sponsored by their own government or through other international scholarship programmes. In most cases applications should be made through the Ministry of Education in the student's home country.
The Irish Council for International Students administers Study Fellowships under the Irish Aid Programmes for students for Priority Aid Countries. Please refer to http://www.icosirl.ie/ for further information. International students are also advised to refer to the Website of the International Education Board Ireland, http://www.educationireland.ie/ which gives information on scholarship sources.
