• The students who are awarded scholarships are required to pay any fees due to the University. Failure to do so may result in the withdrawal of the scholarship.

• Scholarships cannot be deferred.

• As this is a private scholarship, the successful candidate will be asked to provide a short annual report and photographs, extracts of which will be used in publicity materials.

• UCD Access and Lifelong Learning reserve the right to withdraw the scholarship should a student continually fail to complete the academic standards of their programme, or if they face disciplinary proceedings within UCD.

• Applicants must have a legal entitlement to remain in Ireland to complete their proposed course of study. The onus rests with the applicant to satisfy the University in this regard.

• UCD Cothrom na Féinne Scholars will be encouraged to act as role models within UCD and their local community.
