The devolved capital grant allocation for 2021 facilitates higher institutions to address a number of key capital investment priorities including the procurement of additional ICT devices, i.e. laptops and other devices, to support disadvantaged students who have difficulty in accessing a suitable device for their studies. The laptop grant scheme is managed by each institution. Therefore the most effective route for this particular case, is for the student to make contact with the Access Office in UCC www.ucc.ie/en/accessforall/. My office can provide any further specific information regarding the Access Office if the Deputy wishes to make contact directly.
