SUSI is Ireland’s single national awarding authority for all higher and further education grants.

Student grants are divided into maintenance grants, fee grants and the postgraduate contribution. SUSI funding is available for eligible students in approved full-time Third Level education in Ireland and in some cases for those studying outside of Ireland. SUSI offers support to all types of students, from Undergraduate to Postgraduate Students and to mature students returning to education. To check your eligibility and to begin the application process, go to and make your on-line application.

The online application system for the 2020-2021 academic year opened on 23 April 2020.
