Bursary Scheme 2020/2021

The INTO Bursary Scheme for members will be continued for 2020. Up to six bursaries will be awarded with awards of €3,000 for doctorate level and €1,500 for masters level/other. Bursaries are open to all INTO members, North and South. Any project which has been approved as a research endeavour by a recognised third level institute will be considered for grant purposes.

CEC have decided that one of the INTO Bursaries in 2020 will be ring-fenced for research into Educational Disadvantage in honour of Vere Foster, INTO’s first President, who was born just over 200 years ago and who was particularly active in addressing educational disadvantage. Therefore, one of the six bursaries will be awarded to a teacher undertaking research on a topic relevant to educational disadvantage.

All applications received by the closing date of 5pm Friday, 25 September 2020 will be examined by an independent assessor who will make recommendations on the applications. Bursaries will be awarded at a ceremony at this year’s INTO Consultative Conference on Education, which is taking place on Friday 13 and Saturday, 14 November 2020 at the Mullingar Park Hotel.

Application forms should be returned to: Education Section (Bursary Scheme), INTO, 35 Parnell Square, Dublin 1 or via email to education@into.ie.
