All students who are fully engaging with the LINC Programme will receive a €200.00 bursary. Students are requested to provide their bank details on completion of their registration as a student with MIC in order for the bursary to be issued to their bank account.
A Student Assistance Fund (SAF) is also available to support students from socio-economically disadvantaged backgrounds with ongoing needs for financial support. All full time or part time students on a course that leads to a higher education award at level 6 -10 of the national framework of qualifications are eligible to apply for the SAF. Information on the application process for the SAF is communicated to students by email on an annual basis.
MIC also provides a Laptop Lending Scheme for its students. The scheme, which is funded by the Department of Further & Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science, supports disadvantaged students in the higher education sector in accessing ICT devices. MIC has a limited number of laptops available to loan to eligible students and invites applications on an annual basis to students by email.
