Supporting Scholarships at UCD

Funding Scholarships

A scholarship is an investment in youth, education and potential. Many of UCD’s scholarships and awards are supported by alumni and friends of the university through donations to UCD Foundation. These gifts, which can take the form of single or regular donations, corporate support or legacy bequests, have a direct impact on the lives of students, supporting everything from increasing access to education, to opportunities for talented young athletes and performing artists.

There has never been a more important time to invest in UCD and support the next generation of students and scholars. Please click here to learn how you can make a difference.

Scholarships Management & Governance

The governance of scholarships and awards in UCD is carried out by the Ad Astra and Scholarships Management Board. The Board is responsible for the strategic direction of the UCD Ad Astra Academy and also fulfils an audit and oversight function for the wider body of scholarships and awards offered by the University. The Board is chaired by the Registrar and reports to the University’s Academic Council.
