Teagasc Student Maintenance Grant

The Teagasc Authority approved the introduction of means testing of maintenance grants for students attending Further Level Courses at Teagasc and Private Agricultural Colleges in 2012.

  • Teagasc student maintenance grants are paid through Teagasc and the grant scheme is managed by Teagasc. The scheme will be implemented along the lines of the National Student Grant Scheme 2020 but varies in respect of what 'add backs' are used to determine overall reckonable income

  • Means testing will apply to full time courses

  • Students awarded a Teagasc Student Maintenance Grant at Level 5 and progressing onto a Level 6 programme will be requested to complete a Grant Renewal Form. This form will be issued to each student in early September. There will be a means re-assessment for a portion of students who were in receipt of a grant at Level 5

  • Application Forms and Guidance Notes are available at: www.teagasc.ie/education/going-to-college/grants

Salesian Agricultural College will not be processing the applications and will not be in a position to handle specific queries about applications

Queries should be directed either:


Please note: Teagasc student maintenance grant applications are not processed by SUSI (student Universal Support Ireland).

Students on the Higher Certificate in Engineering in Agricultural Mechanisation course can only apply for the SUSI (Student Universal Support Ireland) grant. This course is run in conjunction with LIT.

Please ask at Reception if you are unsure which grant is applicable to your course.
