The annual Entrance Scholarship Ceremony recognises the academic achievements of some of our first year students in their Leaving Certificate exams, as well as scholarships for the Bachelor of Music and Equine Business degrees.

Almost 50 students beginning their studies at Maynooth in 2019 are awarded €1,000 for achieving 550 points or more in their Leaving Certificate examinations. From September 2020 Entrance Scholars will be able to obtain an apartment on campus for their first year (normal charges apply).

Eight students studying the Froebel Bachelor in Education degree were recognised on the night for their Leaving Certificate achievements. Among the other popular courses represented were the Arts and Science (with Education) degrees. In addition, Maynooth University offered an Entrance Scholarship for one entrant to MH103 Music course and this inaugural award went to Iva Breskovac. The award is based on the MH103 written test, interview and audition.

Two Michael Osborne Equine Business Scholarships were offered on the night to students of the Equine Business degree programme. These scholarships were awarded to Olivia Crimmins and Alix Donnelly.
