The annual scholarships, first offered in Northern Ireland in 2009, are funded by businessman JP McManus.

They provide financial assistance to top-performing students from low-income households who intend to take up full-time undergraduate courses in the coming autumn.

The value of each scholarship is £5,500 per annum for the duration of their undergraduate degree programme.

Recognising the opportunities afforded by the scholarships, Economy Minister Gordon Lyons says, “These scholarships recognise the importance of higher education in changing lives and aim to ensure that high performing students are able to avail of the opportunity and continue their education.

“I am delighted to note that to date 275 students from Northern Ireland have been awarded a scholarship.

“I would like to thank JP McManus for his continued generosity in providing these scholarships which help ease the financial concerns of the students.”

The 25 Northern Ireland scholarships will be awarded to the top 19 performing ‘A’ level students in grant aided post primary schools and the top six performing Level 3 Extended Diploma students in the further education colleges.  

Applicants must have been in receipt of the Educational Maintenance Allowance at the time of examination and due to commence an undergraduate degree at a university or further education college in September / October 2022.
