Waterford Institute of Technology President’s Scholarship programme is open for CAO 2019 applicants

Waterford Institute of Technology's (WIT) President's Scholarship programme, which encourages and rewards inspiring young people who demonstrate a capacity to shape a better society, is taking applications until 5.15pm on March 1. 

The scholarship programme is now open for the fourth year running and will support five individuals who already demonstrate the ability to make Irish society a better place, and allow them to further their potential.

Previous scholarship recipients hail from across Waterford, Dublin, Cork, Limerick and Wexford. 

The programme will see five exceptional students being awarded scholarships with a total value of up to €12,000 each. In the search for this year’s president’s scholars, WIT welcomes applications from prospective students who are inspiring in their actions and behaviours. 

The application process has four stages. People cannot apply for the scholarship unless they have applied to the CAO and have chosen a WIT course. 

People can make a CAO application by Thursday (February 1) at 5.15pm, choosing the WIT course preference and applying for the WIT President's Scholarship before March 1 using the online form. People who wish to change CAO course preference can use the CAO's online facility to amend course choices up until March 1.
