The 1916 Bursary Fund is a targeted funding scheme established by the Department of Education and Skills to support implementation of the National Plan for Equity of Access to Higher Education 2015-2019. The National Access Plan is working to increase the numbers of students who are currently under-represented in higher education. 

The Bursary is being offered to undergraduate students experiencing socio-economic disadvantage who are commencing third level education in September 2019 for the first time - and will fund the entire duration of a student's programme of study.

All of the Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) are awarding the Bursaries as regional clusters. The Midlands East & North Dublin (MEND) cluster is made up of four (HEIs) - Athlone Institute of Technology (AIT), Dublin City University (DCU), Dundalk Institute of Technology (DkIT), and Maynooth University (MU).  The MEND cluster have a total of 40 bursaries available to award to students applying to these (HEIs). 

Each student who is awarded the 1916 Bursary will receive a bursary to the amount of €5,000 for each year of their undergraduate course of study.

The bursary will be paid each year of the course up to a maximum of four years for full-time students and six years for part-time students as long as the recipient complies with the bursary guidelines and progresses to the next academic year of their course.
