Most of the grants which the HEA allocates are ‘recurrent’ grants, allocated against the ongoing running costs of the institutions. The HEA also allocates capital funding for buildings and equipment with agreement from the Department of Education and Skills.
The Higher Education Authority is the statutory agency responsible for the allocation of exchequer funding to the universities, institutes of technology (IoTs) and other higher education institutions (HEIs).
Student finance pages are a convenient and user-friendly source of information on financial support for further and higher education.
