Student Maintenance Grants

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.

Means testing will apply to Teagasc Level 5 and Level 6 full-time courses for the academic year 2023/2024.

Teagasc student maintenance grants are paid through Teagasc and the grant scheme is managed by Teagasc.  The Teagasc grant scheme will be implemented along the lines of the National Student Grant Scheme 2023 but varies in respect of what 'add backs' are used to determine overall reckonable income.

Please note that applicants cannot apply to Student Universal Support Ireland (SUSI) to be means tested for a Teagasc Student Maintenance Grant. - see note below *
