Naughton Scholarships for Undergraduate STEM Entrants
Scholarship Name Naughton Scholarships for Undergraduate STEM Entrants
Academic Year 2020
Nationality Any

The Naughton Scholarships are a scheme of scholarships to promote the study of engineering, science and technology at third level by students in Ireland. Each year from February to May Leaving Certificate students can apply for a scholarship if they intend on studying science, engineering or technology at third level that year.
The Scholarships are particularly intended for students applying to study STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) related subjects rather then the more practical sciences (Medicine, Nursing, Veterinary, Physiotherapy etc). All applications are reviewed in August each year and the winners of scholarships are notified in September.

Significant importance and preference will be given to those candidates who achieve the highest combined results in the Leaving Certificate in the Applicable Subjects (Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Physics and Chemistry, Biology, Engineering, Agricultural Science, Technology and Design and Communication Graphics).

However, the Selection Panel will also review and evaluate the merits and eligibility of candidates using several other criteria, including:

  1. the interest, ability and potential of the candidate to study their chosen field;
  2. the existence and severity of any disadvantages or barriers which may prevent or impede the candidate from their chosen field;
  3. the candidate's motivation, commitment and disposition to benefit from third-level education and to complete the course of study successfully; and
  4. the candidate's personal statements will bear on their likelihood of success.

Full details on who is eligible to apply for a scholarship, the terms and conditions applicable to the scholarships and answers to frequent questions are contained in
