  119.  Deputy Tom Fleming  Information on Tom Fleming  Zoom on Tom Fleming   asked the Minister for Education and Skills  Information on Ruairí Quinn  Zoom on Ruairí Quinn   if he will investigate whether any higher education grant or assistance is available in respect of a person (details supplied) in County Kerry; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [1742/12]

Minister for Education and Skills (Deputy Ruairí Quinn): Information on Ruairí Quinn  Zoom on Ruairí Quinn  The decision on eligibility for a student grant is a matter for the relevant grant awarding authority. The Deputy will appreciate that in the absence of all of the relevant details that would be contained in an individual’s application form and supporting documentation it would not be possible for me to say whether or not a student would qualify for a grant. The student in question should apply directly to her local grant awarding to have her eligibility for a student grant assessed.
