39 elite student-athletes presented with sport scholarships at awards ceremony

DIT celebrated its sports scholars last week when 39 new student athletes were presented with Sports Scholarships. The students represent a wide range of sports - from athletics, gaelic games, rugby and soccer to canoe, water polo and rock climbing – as well as a wide range of academic disciplines.  The successful athletes include five elite student-athletes who were each awarded a sport scholarship postgraduate fee waiver. 

Presenting the awards, President of DIT, Professor Brian Norton said the event celebrated the commitment not only of the athletes but also of their parents. “Dublin Institute of Technology has excelled on the national sports stage by producing and supporting athletes to compete in national and international competition. I am consistently impressed with the level and variety of talent among our sports scholars.  Their commitment to combining training and study is a tribute to each of them.”

Sinead McNulty, Head of Sport at DIT said the scholarship programme was indicative of the huge commitment to the area of sport and recreation in DIT. ….. “The Institute has made a significant investment in sport over the years – through continued support for this Scholarship programme and through the wider Sports & Recreation Service.  Sport is officially on the agenda in DIT…”

Among the recipients was Sara Glynn, who had just returned from major success at the World University Equestrian Championships in Korea last month.  Sara won four medals in total, including three individual silver medals and a ‘Team Gold’.  She received an elite-level scholarship, in recognition of her recent success.  Other elite scholars include Tim Kiernan, canoe freestyle; Sean Hendrick, canoe polo; Alan Freeman, Gaelic Football; Stephen Cole, hockey; and Sean Kenna, waterpolo.
