Letterkenny local wins €10,000 Scholarship with HSSCU

Health Services Staffs Credit Union provided a €10,000 scholarship to Letterkenny local Matthew Comiskey late last year.

Matthew received one of the top spots out of over 290 applications received for the scholarships that year.

Matthew is studying Biomedical Science at University Ulster. Congratulations to Matthew. HSSCU provides a total fund of €50,000 annually to successful applicants.


Luke Casey, HSSCU Marketing Manager said “HSSCU are proudly in a position to provide such financial support for members educational pursuits.

The benefits of credit union membership have an even greater level of importance now with people facing rising costs across the board.

Initiative like this of giving back to our members is a huge part of what makes credit unions different from others. Everyone at HSSCU wishes Matthew all the best in his studies and our other successful applicants”.

The credit union has a strong membership in Letterkenny and across Donegal due to hospital staff and their family members eligible to join.

If you work or study within the healthcare system (public or private) you are eligible to join.

Supporting members with their educational pursuits is extremely important to HSSCU.

Whether studying for a degree, diploma, masters, or any further education course, you can apply for a HSSCU scholarship.


The credit union has also made donations to Bonagee United Football Club and Letterkenny & District Pipe Band within the last year in Donegal.

For those eligible to apply the application process for 2023 Scholarships will be opened by HSSCU in the early summer.
