Irish Tax Institute launches 2015 Third-Level Scholarship Programme
So what’s it all about?
The Scholarship Programme is an opportunity for you to receive some financial assistance through third-level education and on to the AITI programme to begin a career as an AITI Chartered Tax Adviser (CTA). You will also be provided with a mentor from the Irish Tax Institute to support you through the Scholarship Programme.
If you aspire to a dynamic profession, one which offers top-level opportunities in business and industry at home or abroad, but you require financial support to progress to third-level, then this Scholarship programme offers you an ideal opportunity to pursue a career in tax.
Who is eligible to apply?
Leaving Certificate students in the Republic of Ireland who are interested in a career in tax and feel they will achieve at least 450 points in the Leaving Certificate, but who require financial support to progress to third-level can apply.
How do I apply?
You will be required to be nominated by a school guidance counsellor, so speak to him/her in the first instance. They will submit an expression of interest on your behalf by Friday, 6 March 2015.
You will then have to complete an application form which should be submitted along with a profile from you as to why you think you should receive the Scholarship by Friday, 27 March 2015.
How will candidates be selected?
The Irish Tax Institute Scholarship Committee will carry out the selection process. All applications will be reviewed according to a number of criteria including your enthusiasm for completing the Scholarship Programme and pursuing a career in tax, your requirement for financial support and your ability to achieve 450 points in the Leaving Certificate.
