Scholarships and Bursaries
There are two categories of scholarships and bursaries available to Griffith College Dublin applicants – a Griffith College Dublin (GCD) Bursary and an Academic Merit Scholarship (AMS).
The GCD Bursary is awarded to each applicant who is successful in being offered a place on a Griffith College Dublin programme.
The Academic Merit Scholarship (AMS) is an additional scholarship which is offered to students who demonstrate a strong academic performance at the time of application.
Scholarships are awarded to applicants at the time of admission to Griffith College Dublin and are applicable in each year of study where a learner progresses from one year of a programme to the next.
