Taught Master's Alumni Scholarships 2018

The scholarships provide Maynooth Alumni (including the current graduating class) with a €5,000 scholarship towards fees for a Taught Master's qualification. Now in its fourth year, the Maynooth Alumni Taught Master's Scholarship programme continues to be an invaluable help to alumni to further their education. Funded by revenues from the Maynooth Alumni Affinity Card, the Maynooth Alumni Taught Master's Scholarship Programme continues to change lives. Over 100 graduates applied for the 2018 scholarships, and as Maynooth continues to expand its bursary and scholarship opportunities, support for our students is deeply appreciated.

Congratulations to the 2018 Maynooth alumni scholarship winners:

Clíodhna Duffy 
MA Nua Ghaeilge

“Chuala mé faoin scoláireacht seo thart ar sé mí ó shin ó mo léachtóirí sa Nua-Ghaeilge nuair a bhí orm cinneadh a dhéanamh
fanacht in Ollscoil Mhá Nuad don mháistreacht. Leis an scoláireacht seo a fháil tá an t-ádh orm go bhfuil mé in ann leanúint ar aghaidh ag déanamh ar theanga na tíre seo in áit a thug an oiread sin deiseanna acadúla agus sóisialta dom le ceithre bliana anuas mar fhochéimí.”

John McEneaney 
MA Data Analytics 

“I first heard about the scholarship
from a lecturer who I had spoken to about doing my masters. If it wasn't for this alumni scholarship, it is likely that I would not have been financially able to do this course. I'm very grateful for this opportunity as it will really help me pursue a career in the field of Data Science.”

Sinéad O'Connell
PME
Secondary Education Year 1

“I really enjoyed my time as an undergraduate in Maynooth. It was an easy choice to return to the University to do a masters and qualify as a teacher.  I’m very proud to have been awarded the alumni scholarship and, it will really ease the burden of funding this course."
