The MLSA is pleased to announce the Cyril Keogh Academic Bursary awards for 2023. In early 2023 prior to the close of applications, the Executive Committee reviewed the scheme and increased the total number of bursaries available to sixteen, an increase of four or 33%. The Executive Committee also retained discretion to increase the number of awards further in any given year.
There were an unprecedented thirty eligible bursary applications in 2023, due in part to the huge increase in membership numbers and in younger members over the past few years. In recognition of this and of the sound financial position of the union, the Executive Committee voted unanimously to award a bursary to each of the thirty eligible applicants in 2023.
The names of members in receipt of a bursary in 2023 are available in the bursary section of the Members’ Area of the website. Congratulations to all on the successful completion of their NFQ Level 9 qualifications.
