Mental Health Ireland are committed to supporting mental health promotion and recovery across Ireland through our Tony Leahy Bursary Programme. Each year we offer up to 60 individual Bursaries for specific courses across Ireland. In 2021 we are delighted to add the Certificate in Peer Support Recovery at GMIT to our supported courses.
- Bursaries are awarded up to a maximum of 50% of course fees. (Bursaries of up to 100% of course fees are available to members of the Traveller community and those who identify as an international protection applicant, or a person granted international protection i.e. an asylum seeker, refugee, or person who has been granted Discretionary Leave to Remain (DLR).)
- Bursaries are competitive, may vary in amount and strict eligibility criteria will apply.
- The closing date for receipt of Tony Leahy Bursary Applications is Friday 27th August 2021.
- Bursary Applications received after this date will not be considered.
- Please note that Bursaries awarded will be in respect of the programme commencing within the year in which the application is made only.
