Want to have a subsidised summer writing, with a reading at the end of it?
Why not apply for the Eoin Murray Memorial Scholarship, in memory of the late Eoin Murray, poet and UCC student. The scholarship, now in in its second year, offers a prize of €1,500 to enable the winner to devote the summer to writing.
Last year, poet Ali Bracken Ziad, pictured above, a final year student in the BA in English, won the award and performed from his work at an annual tribute night reading in Eoin’s memory.
The scholarship is open to undergraduate and postgraduate students registered in UCC’s College of Arts, Celtic Studies and Social Sciences.
The closing date for applications is 31 January 2019.
