The UCD Sports Graduate Scholarship (SGS) supports athletes in their pursuit of both sporting and academic success. Successful applicants will be known as “UCD Graduate Sports Scholar

Candidates qualifying for more than one scholarship or bursary and successful in that, can’t add or combine them. They will be awarded the higher amount.
