Earlier this month, Dublin City Students Kate Burke and Brian Kelleher were awarded Naughton Foundation Scholarships worth €20,000 each at a ceremony in the Trinity Business School in Dublin.
The award was presented by founding patrons of the Naughton Foundation, Dr. Martin Naughton, and his wife Carmel, who were joined by Mr. Simon Harris, Minister for Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science to award winning students with their accolades and cheques.
Kate and Brian both join 37 exceptional Irish students who were awarded third level scholarships towards their studies in the areas of engineering, science, technology, and maths.
Both prize winner’s former secondary schools Holy Faith Secondary and Belvedere College were awarded a prize of €1000 each towards their school’s science facilities, for their support of these students.
More than 250 schools have also benefited from this prize to date with some schools receiving it on more than one occasion.
