The James Massey Keegan Scholarship is offered to students at NUI Galway. It is awarded based on the results of the Leaving Certificate. It is valued at €1,500.
Students who get the best scores on the Leaving Certificate get this award. To be considered they must be registered at the University of Ireland in Galway. They can be enrolled in any primary degree programme, but it has to be on a full-time basis. The scholarship cannot be deferred to another year, and is only offered for first year study.
