DkIT and Drogheda United launch Soccer Scholarship Academy
DkIT President Denis Cummins and Drogheda United FC Chairman Jim Agnew are delighted to announce the launch of a Soccer Scholarship Academy which will provide 3rd level scholarships to students of DkIT who also play for Drogheda United Football Club.
The scheme is aimed at CAO candidates who wish to pursue a third level education whilst simultaneously pursuing a professional soccer playing career at the highest level in Ireland. DkIT will offer a total of four soccer scholarships each year to both Leaving Certificate students and mature students.
A successful candidate’s performance will be assessed annually, under both academic and soccer performance criteria, across the duration of their academic programme. They will also assist as student ambassadors on college open days and in school recruitment initiatives as well as playing on the college teams.
