Student Household Allowance

Student Household Allowance 

  • Students located in Dublin, Cork, Limerick and Galway are deemed by CAPES to reside in "high cost cities" and thus will receive an additional allowance of €400 per student per month paid directly to students by CAPES.
     
  • Students in all other locations will be provided with a “purchase card system” by their higher education institution (HEI).  The maximum value of the "card" will be €400 per student per month.   Students are advised to contact their higher education institution for exact details of the provision in their HEI.
