Council Bursary Programme now open for applications

Published: 23rd April 2015

Fermanagh and Omagh District Council is now accepting applications for its arts, culture and heritage and sports bursaries for the 2015-2016 financial year.

The Council welcomes bursary applications from both adults and young people who live in the Fermanagh and Omagh district and who wish to develop their skills and knowledge in the areas of arts, culture and heritage or sport.

The closing date for applications is Friday 15 May 2015 at 5pm.

Chairman of Fermanagh District Council, Councillor Thomas O’Reilly, said:

“The bursaries aim to provide support for Fermanagh and Omagh district residents who are actively involved in the arts, culture and heritage or sporting sectors.

I am delighted that a number of our bursaries are specifically for our young people, providing them with a wonderful opportunity to develop their talent. I encourage anyone wishing to develop their skills in the arts, culture and heritage or sporting sectors to contact a Council officer or visit the Council website for further information.”

There may be a second call for bursaries later in the year; however people are encouraged to apply to this call to secure funding.
