Student Universal Support Ireland (SUSI)

SUSI (Student Universal Support Ireland) is Ireland’s single national awarding authority for all higher and further education grants. SUSI offers funding to eligible students in approved full-time third-level education in Ireland and also, in some cases, funding for students studying outside the State.

Support is available to all types of students, from school leavers to mature students returning to education.

The online application system for new and renewal grant applications for the 2019/2020 academic year is  now open.

Last year, SUSI processed more than 98,800 applications with in excess of 81,800 students awarded a grant for the 2018/2019 academic year.
