Portlaoise College is a school that endeavours to uncover every child’s full potentia, nurturing all pupils to achieve their best, enabling them to thrive both academically and as young people.
This ethos is aptly supported by an extensive Scholarship Programme, which includes academia and extra-curricular.

- Incoming 1st Year Scholarship
- TY Scholarship
- STAR Awards (Each Term)
- Excellence in Sports Scholarship
- Music Scholarship
- Gaeltacht Scholarships
- French/German Scholarships
- 3rd Level Bursary
- Annual Excellence Awards
- Portlaoise Institute Scholarship (LCA Students)
In addition, Portlaoise College is working closely with Trinity College Dublin, University College Dublin and Dublin City University to offer our students scholarships to partake in these universities’ prestigious summer schools.
Principal Noel Daly commented that: “At Portlaoise College, we firmly believe that every pupil should make the most of their personal gifts.
“Our Recognising Student Excellence programme seeks to identify those pupils who excel in their studies and other areas of school life, and offer them the opportunity to pursue their aspirations with the support and guidance of our exceptional staff.
“Our programmes are based upon academic and personal development to ensure that the potential of each student is realised in accordance with their particular abilities and aspirations.
“Portlaoise College’s Recognising Student Excellence programme will provide our students with many opportunities and experiences to fulfil their potential”.
