NUI Maynooth is committed to the development of sporting excellence, and awards a number of sport scholarships annually to foster and promote sporting talent.
Closing date is 15th April 2014
The scholarship initiative is an investment in student potential, and aims to relieve students of financial pressure, so they can maintain a dual focus on academic and sporting progression.
Scholarships are awarded for both undergraduate and postgraduate students. Scholarship funding assists students with sports and university-related expenses (e.g. sporting equipment, travel costs associated with sport) and aims to free up time from part-time work commitments.
NUI Maynooth has a strong soccer programme in place.
We have four men's and one ladies team competing in third level leagues; our men's teams compete in every division of the CUFL & the IUFU cup competitions annually. Our ladies' team in the Premier of the WSCAI league.
All teams are coached by experienced UEFA qualified coaches. Our soccer scholarship programme is run in partnership with St. Patrick's Athletic Football Club. It is envisaged that soccer scholars, of a sufficient standard, will have the opportunity to play League of Ireland football while pursuing their academic qualifications at NUI Maynooth. All applicants will be considered regardless of which club they currently play for. Soccer Scholarship students & students that represent NUI Maynooth Soccer have access to the first class sports facilities and supports on campus.
Former professional Barry Prenderville is the Soccer Development Officer at the University.
