Kiran Pathak Pharmacy Scholarship

The Kiran Pathak Pharmacy Scholarship was established in memory of Kiran Pathak MPSI, and his family, who tragically lost their lives in a boating accident in Kenya in 2001.

The scholarship provides educational opportunities for students with a desire to study Pharmacy at RCSI.

The Kiran Pathak Pharmacy Scholarship is offered to students who are Higher Education Access Route (HEAR) eligible, in addition to the normal supports provided through the Government Free Fees Initiative and SUSI Grant.

The objective of the scholarship is to lessen the financial burden of attending the University and therefore allow the student to fully focus on their academic coursework.
