Welcome to the Scholarships section of the LYIT website.
We offer five different types of Scholarships – three for new entrants and two for existing students of the Institute. Find out more about each below.
These three Scholarships are available to new entrants to the Institute:
LYIT has established a Bursary Scheme (REACH) to support and facilitate students wishing to complete an undergraduate programme in the academic year 2016/2017. REACH is targeting students who might not progress onto third level due to having a disability or lacking the financial wherewithal to participate.
