University College Cork‘s Quercus Talented Students’ Programme is a scholarship programme that supports and promotes excellence in academia, sport, creative and performing arts, active citizenship & innovation/entrepreneurship for both prospective undergraduate/level 8 students and students already registered in UCC.

In addition to the scholarships in these areas UCC also offer three types of Quercus Academic Scholarship. Students, where eligible, who are offered more than one Quercus Scholarship will accept subsequent scholarships on the basis that the bursary award from the highest valued scholarship only will apply.

Applications close 12th February.

Quercus is the Latin for oak – or Arabic for cork – the cork that is derived from the cork oak in Iberia.  UCC use the symbolism ‘from acorn to mighty oak’ to represent  the growth that  arises from nurturing talent through support, challenge and mentoring both academically and in other areas of talent.
