Who we are
Uversity is a Registered Charity that has been awarding Higher Education Scholarships to Adult Learners since 2018. Uversity recognises that there are individuals with potential and ambition who have not acquired a Bachelor’s degree due to personal and, or financial circumstances. Uversity’s Scholarships aim to make a degree possible by offering successful candidates financial support and programming to achieve their educational, personal and professional goals.
What we do
Each year Uversity advertises and awards Higher Education Scholarships to Adult Learners to enrol on a Bachelor’s Degree in selected institutions on the island of Ireland. Uversity provides Scholars with financial support and programming throughout their degree to ensure their success during and after their educational experience. Uversity collaborates and communicates with educational and other stakeholders to share experience, widen our network of supporters and inform Uversity’s ongoing operations.
Uversity is governed and managed by dedicated staff and Board of Directors who subscribe to Vince Lombardi Jr’s words that,
Excellence can be obtained if you. . . dream more than others think is practical... expect more than others think is possible.
