Student Assistance Fund is an invaluable resource for third level students who
are finding it difficult to make ends meet,” Minister Harris said.
2023 made real and meaningful changes for students. We reduced the registration
fee by €1,000 and increased the maintenance grant. The renters credit and the
extension of free public transport are also tangible changes which will make
important changes for students. This is a further extension of that support,”
funding will be distributed by the Higher Education Authority to higher
education institutions across the country in early 2023.
