Scholarship Draw

St. Canice’s Credit Union Student Scholarship Draw

St. Canice’s Credit Union has created a Scholarship Fund to assist students in their quest for further education and is awarding FIVE SCHOLARSHIPS to the value of €3,000 each based on certain criteria.

Yes, that’s €15,000 worth of scholarships.

The scholarships are exclusive to St. Canice’s Credit Union members to assist them with their chosen education path and applications are invited from members who are currently attending or commencing training or educational courses.

The draw is not based on academic results which means that all entries have a fair chance of winning.

We believe that through education, we are investing in our youth who will go on to lead our community and help make the world a better place.
