Research Bursary Region 3 Education Centres: Kilkenny, Waterford and Wexford
As you may be aware, Waterford Teachers’ Centre, and indeed the whole south eastern educational community, suffered a tragic loss last December with the sudden passing of Louise Madigan, WTC Administrator.
Louise was the exceptionally efficient co-ordinator of the Annual South Eastern Educational Research Conference, held every October on a rotational basis in Kilkenny, Waterford and Co. Wexford Education Centres.
In order to mark her significant contribution to the Conference, the Management Committees of the three Centres are establishing a bursary of €1,500 in her name, to be presented to a teacher from our region who is engaged in research for a post-graduate Masters or Doctorate, to assist with the costs of this work. The first bursary will be presented next October.
