Scholarships

The DCFE scholarship programme matches up a current Dunboyne College student with a company or organisation as that student’s sponsor. The sponsor commits to, at the minimum, reimbursing the college fees (or a sizeable part of the fees) to the student upon successful completion of the academic year.

The sponsor agrees to do the following:

  • Choose an academic area (e.g. science, business, law, childcare etc.)
  • Take part in the selection of the student deserving of the scholarship.
  • Reimburse the college fees (or a sizeable part of your fees) of that chosen student upon successful completion of the academic year.
  • Optionally, the sponsor might build a relationship with the recipient student by providing a work experience opportunity, paying other expenses, offering an internship, etc.

How will a student be chosen?

Initially the college will promote the scholarship programme to the students and take expressions of interest. The college will narrow down these applications after written competition and interviews. The sponsor will then have an opportunity to meet and interview the top three candidates and choose at least one of these (see the application form for more details).

Further information will be provided to students when applications open.

 

Green campus

Dunboyne College is working towards registering as a Green Campus by setting up a committee of Staff and Students.  If you have any interest in this area new members are always welcome, please contact Orla at [email protected]

Education and the Environment: Geraldine Lane and Clare Blackwell are working with students in Dunboyne College to participate in the Smarter Travel Campus Awards.

The Smarter Travel Campus Awards invite students to create entries relevant to their course discipline to encourage and enable walking, cycling, public transport and carpooling. Students will have the opportunity to participate in a real-life project that they can add to their graduate portfolio or CV, win an award, and have their work showcased at the Smarter Travel Campus Award Ceremony.
