The GAA have again reiterated their commitment to the ongoing educational development of its players and members by announcing details of the 2023/24 GAA National Student Bursary scheme. The scheme is open to members of the Association who are attending a full-time Higher Education course (except those who hold another GAA-related or college scholarship/bursary) and who are active participants in their Higher Education club; to date the GAA has invested over €1.5 million in the time that its Bursary Schemes have been in existence.
The schemes are administered by the respective Provincial Councils and recipients will again be selected based on a range of criteria, including their playing, coaching or administrative commitments to the GAA. A number of awards in each province will be reserved for those excelling in the areas of coaching and administration.
Closing date for applications is Friday 17th November at 9pm.
Senior Intercounty players who were on their County’s Senior Panel in 2023 should apply for Bursaries via the Gaelic Players Association; further information at www.gaelicplayers.com.
