"Coming into UCD my academic goals were just as important to me as my sporting goals. UCD Ad Astra helped me balance both aspects of my life enabling me to represent my country on the athletics track and qualify from my degree with a 1st. The opportunity to shape my time in UCD to best suit my sporting calender was most notably the biggest benefit for me, for which I also have to thank UCD School of Physiotherapy."

“My Ad Astra Scholarship has been absolutely invaluable to me during my time in UCD. I firmly believe that it has allowed me to compete in my sport at the highest possible level while affording me the chance to have an enjoyable and authentic college experience. My time in UCD has been fantastic both on and off the field and this would not have been possible without the support I received”
