The Ad Astra Academy is an initiative designed to recognise and nurture exceptional students in academia, sports and the performing arts. This is avaliable to University College Dublin students who wish to further develop their performing talents. Scholars receive a scholarship, mentoring, tailored supports, and the ability to live together on campus. Scholarships are awarded for the duration of the degree subject.
The student must be considered an exceptional student. The student must be attending University College Dublin. The student is expected to continue such outstanding performance.
