The fifth presentation in the STEAM Bursary rewarded the students of St. Vincent's and St. Colman's.

Griffith College in partnership with recruiters CPL presented two Cork secondary schools with STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths) bursaries as part of a STEAM awareness initiative headed by the national institution.

As part of the initiative, Griffith College welcomed St. Colman’s College Cork and St. Vincent’s to its Wellington Road campus where members of staff presented each school with a cheque.

Each DEIS school was awarded a 1,000 cheque which will be used to fund and improve STEAM equipment within the school. Paired with the monetary award, each school will receive a tour of the initiative supporters work spaces. St. Colman’s will be given a guided tour of Microsoft while St. Vincent’s will tour Core offices and participate in a photography workshop at Griffith College Cork.

This is the fifth presentation to take place as part of Griffith College’s STEAM initiative. Three Deis schools in Dublin also received bursary funding from Griffith College as part of the initiative. The STEAM initiative was shortlisted at the Education Awards 2019 for “Best Outreach Initiative”.

Recipients were chosen by a panel of judges including, Griffith’s Ciara Browne, Waseem Ahktar, John Molohan, Claire Aston and Siobhan O’Shea from CPL.

Other schools to receive a bursary included:

  • St John’s De La Salle, Ballyfermot
  • Kylemore, Ballyfermot
  • Loreto, Crumlin
