Heffernan Bursary Fund

This Bursary is open to all Doctoral or Masters students who already hold the status of secondary school teachers/principals.

The Heffernan bursary fund was established in 2003 in memory of Lola Margaret Heffernan through a bequest from her brother, the late Reverend Brendan Heffernan P.P. who was the first Catholic Chaplain to Trinity College Dublin. The income of the fund, to be allocated by the trustees of the fund, is to support such person or persons being in need of financial assistance to enable them to undertake a course of study which would lead to an enhancement of their skills as teachers or principals within the secondary school system
