Telethon

Support DCUTelethon

From 20th May to 8th June 2019, we will be reaching out to DCU alumni during our telethon to raise critical support for our Access Scholarship Programme. The DCU Access Programme has been ensuring that the world is always full of possibility for talented young people since 1990. The programme currently supports 1,258 students in the 2018/19 academic year. Watch our ambassador videos below to see how the programme helps students from disadvantaged backgrounds to pursue their dreams with support from DCU alumni.

To find out more, please contact Meabh O’Carroll by emailing meabh.ocarroll@dcu.ie or call +353 1 7005467.
