DkIT Sports Scholarships Awards Evening 2012

DkIT hosted an Awards Evening in order to commemorate the 2011/2012 Sports Scholars, and with such a diverse range of sports i.e. Archery, Fencing and GAA, this year's scholars were excellent representatives for Dundalk Institute of Technology, excelling in their sport both on and off campus.The Sport Scholarships are a reflection of Dundalk Institute of Technology's commitment to the development of a comprehensive sporting policy and are awarded to students who display high achievement levels, commitment and dedication to their chosen sport, and most importantly loyalty and dedication to that sport within the Institute.  The scheme is developed to offer recipients a comprehensive package including: Sport Science support, free use of facilities, financial assistance, and sports equipment.
