Aim High Medicine Scholarship
Scholarship Name Aim High Medicine Scholarship
Academic Year 2023
Scholarship amount €25,000

Scholarship Deadline 1 July 2023

The Aim High Medicine Scholarships were established in 2012 by RCSI Alumni to provide scholarships for Irish Leaving Certificate students who excel academically and are passionate about developing a lifelong career in medicine.

The scholarships are offered to students who are Higher Education Access Route (HEAR) eligible. In addition to the normal supports provided through the Government Free Fees Initiative and SUSI Grant, these scholarships offer additional financial support of €25,000 in total, for the duration of the Undergraduate Medicine programme.

The objective of the scholarships are to lessen the financial burden of attending the University and therefore allow the student to fully focus on their academic coursework.

The Ireland Healthcare Aim High Scholarship is delivered at RCSI in partnership with the UnitedHealth Foundation and Optum Ireland, as part of its Ireland Healthcare Scholarship Programme.

It seeks to grow the healthcare workforce within communities in Ireland and focuses on underserved students seeking to pursue a career in medicine and healthcare.
