Bursary Scheme 2014

 As this is the inaugural year of our Arts Bursary & Awards Scheme the focus of this year’s County Arts Office Bursary Scheme will be: individual professional artists operating in the Longford County Council administrative area and aspiring artists from the Longford County Council administrative area, studying creative arts at a third level college.

Grants will be awarded to artists to support continuing professional development.  The forms of professional development envisaged are:

  • Support for the creation of new work
  • Professional development and training
  • Funding for materials and equipment
  • Other creative or professional development purposes.

Artists Bursaries will be in the region of €500.00 though this figure may be varied by the adjudicators based on such factors as the number of applicants and the quality of projects.

Education Bursaries will be paid to students from Longford County Council administrative area that were involved in a full time third level creative arts course in an accredited third level college from September 2014.

Students intending to attend art-form specific creative summer courses may also apply.
