Each year Portlaoise College award two students with a Scholarship Bursary worth €1,000 each which goes towards their third level education fees.
This Scholarship Bursary has only been made possible through the hard work of our excellent Parents Council.
The school’s Parents Council have financially supported student’s third level progression at Portlaoise College by fundraising each year to sponsor the Bursary.
This year Illan Dunne and Anita Walas were presented with cheques of €1,000 each to help with their higher education studies.
Illan is studying for a Bachelor of Commerce and Law (Hons) in Law with Politics at Dublin City University.
Anita is completing a Bachelor of Commerce and Law (Hons) in Law and Business in University College Cork
These students were selected as they demonstrated a commitment to their studies throughout their Leaving Certificate, a strong work ethic and great enthusiasm in the classroom.
