Monday 4th February saw Griffith College present St. John’s De La Salle with a €5,000 cheque, having been chosen as the college’s overall winners of its STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) Bursary Initiative, which Cpl are proud partners of.
A panel of judges including Griffith’s Ciara Browne, John Molohan, Claire Aston and Waseem Ahktar along with Cpl’s Siobhan O’Shea deliberated over several applications to choose one overall winner and four runners-up.
The Griffith College STEAM Bursary
In 2019 Griffith College introduced a STEAM bursary, specifically targeted at DEIS schools in disadvantaged sectors of the community. The key to the initiative is ensuring that the bursary leads to the development of employer-ready skills for these students.
Cpl is proud to partner with Griffith College on this to bring our experience and industry knowledge to the project through activities including ‘A Day in Cpl’, mock interviews and workshops.
Griffith College President Professor Diarmuid Hegarty presented the school’s principal Ann Marie Leonard with a cheque on behalf of the college to be used to improve STEAM related equipment.
Cpl was delighted to be there on the day to meet the kids and see how impactful the STEAM Bursary could be. Pictured here are recipients from De La Salle.
Other recipients included:
- Kylemore, Ballyfermot
- Loreto, Crumlin
- Colman’s, Cork
- Vincent’s, Cork
