Entrance Scholarship 2023
Over 100 Entrance Scholarships were awarded in 2022 to new MU students pursuing a range of degree courses including MH101 Bachelor of Arts, Psychology, Primary Education and more.
The €1,000 Entrance Scholarship is automatically awarded to incoming first year students, via the CAO, who have obtained 575 points or more in the Leaving Certificate (from six subjects in one sitting). For students presenting GCE A Levels the awards are based on achieving points from three/four subjects in GCE A levels.
Entrance Scholars have the option of residing on campus (normal charges apply). Entrance scholars who have not already booked their campus accommodation, will be offered campus accommodation during CAO Round 1 offers. Unfortunately, the University is not in a position to offer accommodation places in Round 2 or subsequently to Entrance Scholars, as they are fully booked in Round 1 annually.

The Entrance Scholarship for one entrant to MH103 Music is awarded in September. The top scoring applicant, based on the MH103 online video audition, is offered the scholarship of €1,000. The successful applicant is informed following registration.
The Head of the Maynooth University Music Department awards one undergraduate music scholar each year. This scholarship is for current Music students and is based on their year end results. At present no scholarship is available from the Music Department for prospective Music students. For details apply to the Professor of Music.
