Education Grants

Members of the Church of Ireland may be eligible for grant assistance to attend a Protestant second level school in Ireland, or, in rare cases, for assistance with costs at third level.

From time to time clergy and church workers may be approached by parishioners seeking advice or information about meeting the cost of the education of their children.

With this in mind this list has been prepared for your assistance.

In certain circumstances and within the terms of their trusts the following bodies may be in a position to award grants to necessitous applicants:

The principal grant-awarding body is the Secondary Education Committee:
