Sports Scholarships

The sports scholarship scheme at IT Carlow offers a support package and/or offers bursaries to students of exceptional sporting ability.  As well as the growth in the number of scholarships, 2015 saw the first year of our new two strand sports scholarship programme where we recognise elite and gold standard athletes. This year seven students were recognised as elite scholars for their huge contribution to sport. They are: Aidan Fogarty (Hurling); Brendan Murphy (Gaelic Football); Marcus Lawler (Athletics); Rachel Graham (Soccer) and, in basketball, Jason Killeen, Pat Connaghan and Jess Kocci.

Gold Sports Scholarship

IT Carlow provides a number of Gold Sports Scholarships to students who have shown exceptional sporting ability each academic year. The Scholarships afford our sports people, the opportunity to compete at the top level while pursuing a course of academic study. The scheme is designed to nurture and develop individual talent and maintain the Institutes sporting tradition.

In line with these developments, 2015 sees the introduction of our new elite scholarship strand where we recognise the very best athletes competing at the very highest level in their chosen sport.
