University College Cork (UCC) has launched a substantial new bursary fund to the value of €337,000 aimed at widening participation and furthering access to academia for students from under-represented socio-economic backgrounds.
These bursaries are made possible through the generosity of esteemed educator, Dr Mary Barry Wall, a former Senior Lecturer in the School of Education at UCC. After a lifetime of teaching in the university, Dr Barry Wall’s impact continues with a total of 23 UCC Access students expected to benefit from the annual Dr Mary Barry Wall Bursaries. The bursaries will help students to pursue a primary degree in the Humanities and then, if they so wish, follow a career in teaching through the Professional Masters in Education (PME).
