Research Bursary Region 3 Education Centres: Kilkenny, Waterford and Wexford

As you may be aware, Waterford Teachers’ Centre, and indeed the whole south eastern educational community, suffered a tragic loss last December with the sudden passing of Louise Madigan, WTC Administrator.

Louise was the exceptionally efficient co-ordinator of the Annual South Eastern Educational Research Conference, held every October on a rotational basis in Kilkenny, Waterford and Co. Wexford Education Centres.

In order to mark her significant contribution to the Conference, the Management Committees of the three Centres are establishing a bursary of €1,500 in her name, to be presented to a teacher from our region who is engaged in research for a post-graduate Masters or Doctorate, to assist with the costs of this work. The first bursary will be presented next October.

Completed applications must be received (either by post or email) before the closing date, Friday 20th September 2019, to e-mail address: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or postal address: Laura Zalcmane, Conference Co-Ordinator, Waterford Teachers' Centre, Newtown Road, Waterford. Any applications received after the closing date shall not be considered.
