On Friday December 7th, ITB awarded its annual Sports Scholarships to students who have demonstrated outstanding sporting ability. A total of 22 scholarships were awarded to participants in Rugby, Basketball, Soccer, Badminton, Pool, Karate, Taekwon-do and Kick Boxing, with packages totalling 25,000 euros.

The awards were presented to the students by Mr. Ronan Keaskin (ITB Sports Development Officer). Speaking at the presentation Ronan said "ITB is delighted to present scholarships today to such motivated students in such a wide range of sports. ITB has a growing number of clubs on campus and we welcome applications from anyone who wants to participate in sports at a high level while committing to their course of study". The ITB Sports Scholarships were established in 2006 to assist students with outstanding sports potential and ability and recipients compete both at national and international level. In addition to an excellent financial package, recipients are also provided with academic mentoring, free athletic therapy support and high performance personal training support. The scholarships are available to all qualifying full time ITB students. Scholarships are awarded in a range of sports with applicants being short-listed and interviewed as part of the selection process. Each scholarship covers a period of one academic year. Students who are registered on a full-time course at ITB may apply for a scholarship up to the closing date of October 1st. The 2018 awardees are:

The programme is aimed specifically at prospective students who have demonstrated outstanding sporting ability at national or regional level. Students must apply through the CAO in the usual manner and then make a separate application to ITB via the relevant national or regional sporting body.

"Basically the course covers everything to do with digital and online media. I had it as a hobby in sixth year but when I came here I learned so much more."
