Written answers (Question to Education)

Officials in my Department have confirmed with Student Universal Support Ireland that the student referred to by the Deputy is a postgraduate student and he has been awarded a fee grant in accordance with the terms and conditions of the student grant scheme. An award letter issued to the student in this regard on 6th February 2013. Fee grants are paid directly to institutions on students' behalf with payment being made when institutions invoice the grant awarding authority.
