Testimonials from IT Tralee Students
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. Monika Dukarska Rowing ( Senior World Championship Squad)
