Griffith College is Ireland's leading independent third level college. With over 100 courses and 7,500 students in our campuses in Dublin, Cork and Limerick, our aim is to provide quality education to our learners to help them progress in their careers.
The rationale behind the Creative Bursary is to provide better educational opportunities to students in DEIS schools.
Access to education is one of the key determinants of future wealth and success so we want to extend those opportunities to more and more students in Ireland today.
