“Stop Fees Save The Grant”

Budget 2012

Following intense media speculation surrounding possible further increase in college fees and additional cuts to grants, USI contacted every Government TD by email, letter and telephone asking them would they support increases in college fees and cuts to student grants.

NOT A SINGLE TD WAS WILLING TO STAND BY

THEIR PRE-ELECTION PROMISES

What is USI Doing?

USI has set up a campaign website www.stopfees.ie. We are asking every student to log on to this website and use it to email and tweet their TDs in relation to this issue.

On November 1st, USI and Students’ Unions across the country, placed full page advertisements in the Irish Times and the Irish Independent giving the contact details while naming & shaming Government TDs.

Please contact your local TDs and tell them how an additional increase in fees or a further cut in grants will affect your ability to complete your 3rd level education.

USI is organising a National Protest on November 16th in conjunction with your Students’ Union. Please call into your local Students’ Union or log onto www.stopfees.ie for more information.
