Student Grant Deadline Tonight

Student Universal Support Ireland (SUSI) are reminding students that the deadline to apply for grants for the upcoming year is at midnight tonight (Monday).

The original deadline of last Thursday was extended after the SUSI system crashed just hours before closure and was down for a number of hours.

Students are urged to log on and submit applications as soon as possible, as it was the number of applications being made last Thursday that caused the crash.

Students with concerns can contact SUSI at support@susi.ie or on 0761-087874.
