  • Countries with a GDP (per capita) of $10,000 (or less): 15%
  • Countries with a GDP (per capita) of less than $20,000 but greater than $10,000: 10%

In all instances the determination of GDP figures for applicants to Foundation, Undergraduate and Postgraduate programmes at IT Sligo will be assessed through the most recently available statistics from the World Bank.

Continuation of Scholarships
Once a student has been awarded a country of origin scholarship, he / she can continue to avail of the scholarship during their time at IT Sligo, subject to the following condition(s):
