It was announced this week that Monex Financial Services has launched a new scholarship program created to support Killarney Leaving Cert students accepted to third level studies at Cork University Business School (CUBS) at University College Cork (UCC).
The scholarship will offer financial assistance to facilitate progression through third level studies and students from the three Killarney schools.
Successful applicants accepting a CUBS course could receive funding of up to €3,000 per student, per annum.
Speaking at the launch, Dean of Cork University Business School, Ciaran Murphy said, "Our students and, indeed, faculty are extremely fortunate that Frank Murphy, Adjunct Professor in CUBS, has so willingly agreed to offer his vast experience and expertise to them. We have all benefited from Frank’s wisdom, practical advice and generosity of spirit.
He added, "We truly value and appreciate the relationship with Monex and look forward to welcoming students from the schools in Killarney as they embark on their studies with us in Cork University Business School. We commend Monex for their support to local second level students in Killarney."
