Companies and organisations throughout Ireland support CAFRE courses in many ways. One method that directly helps students is through the donation of bursaries, typically worth £1,000.
Each campus receives bursaries from companies trading in their specialism e.g. Food, Agriculture, Equine and Horticulture. Students compete for these highly coveted awards either by completing a topical report or through interviews. Some companies also provide paid work placements to the bursary recipient.
If you are involved in a business and would like more information on our student bursary programme please follow this link to our Bursary Awards booklet.
