Bursaries

Companies and organisations throughout Ireland support our courses in many ways, but one method that directly helps students is through the donation of bursaries.

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.
