IT Tralee is to receive €590,000 in capital grant funding for institutes of technology.
Minister for Education Richard Bruton today announced details of a €10 million allocation for the fourteen I.T.s across the country through the Higher Education Authority.
The decision on the allocation of funding is based on enrolment figures – as one of the five institutes of technology with an enrolment range of less than 3,500 students – IT Tralee will receive €590,000.
The funding can be used for improvement works, to address urgent health and safety concerns, equipment renewal and the upgrade of facilities.
Kerry Fine Gael TD Brendan Griffin has welcomed the funding announcement.
