Student grant move welcomed but means test change neededLocal Sinn Féin TD Brian Stanley is welcoming the changes just announced to the earning disregard for students to qualify for SUSI grants (Student Universal Support Ireland) third level grant. Brian Stanley said: “Under the terms of SUSI, students can now earn an extra €2000 each year without affecting their qualification for the grant. "I raised this issue with Simon Harris a number of times, most recently in May 2022 and I welcome this change." Deputy Stanley called for the means assessment for qualification for SUSI grants to be changed as it is currently based on gross income and not take home pay. "Government needs to use the forthcoming budget to address this and use the opportunity to change the means assessments’’.
