Coming from Sligo to study at UCD in Dublin was a big step for Ruairí. Having grown up in a rural community where money was tight, he is not afraid of hard work. But when having to work every hour he could just to afford to get by meant his chances of ever getting to the university of his choice were seriously in doubt, it was kindness like yours that changed Ruairí’s life forever.
Thanks to his UCD Champions Scholarship, Ruairí is now in his second year of a science degree at UCD and has an exciting future ahead of him. He understands better than most just how precious your support is.
“It is through scholarships like the UCD Champions and thanks to the alumni who support it, that people like me are afforded the opportunity to go to UCD and achieve their goals.”
