Bursary Scheme

As their contribution to the promotion of Engineering as a career, the Association of Consulting Professional Engineers has established the 2006 ACFE Bursary Scheme. The intention of the scheme is to facilitate two qualified motivated school leavers to study a recognised engineering degree at an Irish Third Level College who otherwise would be unable to do so because of financial constraints.

The scheme will pay an annual Bursary of €2000 for up to four years for each student. The students will have to progress successfully in their courses and make a brief presentation of their progress to the ACFE AGM each year.

Principals of Schools were invited to submit suitable candidates from their schools to the Bursary Committee for Consideration and Approval subject to a formal presentation by the candidate and interview of the candidate by the Committee.

The first Bursary was awarded to Jason O’Connell from Limerick who is now studying Civil & Environmental Engineering at UCC.

It is the intention of the Association to award the second Bursary in 2007. The Bursary is open to all suitably qualified school leavers in the Republic of Ireland wishing to study a recognised degree. Applications must be made by their school principal setting out their academic and social achievements and the grounds for awarding the Bursary.
