At the end of May, after extensive background work, Cuala was proud to announce that Amgen had come on-board as a major sponsor of the Men’s Football and Women’s Sections of the club. It has significant value to our players on the field but equally significant is the fact that it was the first ever GAA club sponsorship to include education and employment incentives for club members, including a bursary, mentoring and internship opportunities. This latest announcement is focusing on the Bursary Award.
The Amgen sponsorship is for 3 years and for each of those 3 years there will be an award of a bursary of €5,000 to a Cuala member in full-time third-level education in qualifying disciplines. This is a really unique and attractive opportunity for any club member either commencing or already progressing an eligible third level course.
We are pleased to announce that the 2019 Bursary is now open for applications from all sections and members of Cuala. More details and information on how to apply are on the Bursary Page
Best of Luck!
