TESTIMONIALS FROM IT TRALEE STUDENTS

David Clifford (Gaelic Football Kerry)

David Clifford

The IT Tralee Sports Scholarship Programme really looks after it's athletes. There are supports in place to ensure that you can excel both academically and in your sporting career.

Monika Dukarska (Rowing)

Monika

The ITT scholarship enabled me to pursue rowing at a high performance level. I was able to cover my expenses and the support offered as part of the scholarship ensured that my studies were not compromised. As a scholarship student I was able to represent the college at the World University Games and gain a valuable experience as an international rower. Without the scholarship full time training would be impossible and I wouldn't be able to excel at rowing and my education. The ITT takes care of their athletes and I appreciate the support I received. Thank you IT Tralee.
