Bernie Ruane Scholarship

Dear Parent/Guardian and Student,

To honour the memory of Bernie Ruane, the TUI established the Bernie Ruane TUI Bursary.  The bursary is awarded annually and is intended to provide financial assistance to a student whose intention is to pursue a career in post-primary teaching and who is undertaking a level 8 programme of study in a publicly funded Higher Education Institution within the Republic of Ireland.

The bursary will be for €1,500 annually and can be held for four years of relevant studies as set out in the explanatory leaflet (available in the office). 

Applications for award of the Bursary are therefore invited from final year Leaving Certificate students who will sit the examinations in June 2023.  An applicant must submit the completed application form and Personal Statement (described in the leaflet).  All applications will be treated in the strictest confidence.

Application forms are available from the school office, and the closing date for receipt of applications is Friday, 2nd June 2023.

Yours sincerely,
Michael Gillespie
General Secretary TUI
