The NUI Equal Educational Opportunities Scheme

NUI is committed to promoting greater social equity in Irish higher education through securing increased participation in the Constituent Universities by economically disadvantaged students. To provide further support, the Senate funds an NUI Equal Educational Opportunities Scheme to support students in economically disadvantaged circumstances.

This scheme is administered directly in the Constituent Universities and recommendations relating to the allocation of funding are made to Senate by the President in each Constituent University.
