On Thursday the 10th of November 2016 we held our annual prize giving ceremony for the Credit Union Art competition and the draw for the coveted John Gaynor Memorial Student Scholarship Scheme. We would like to thank everybody who came out for what was a fantastic evening. The Credit Union Art Competition is one of the most successful annual promotions undertaken by Credit Unions and Tipperary Credit Union has been involved in this since its start. The talent and creativity that has been shown by our young members throughout the years has been outstanding and this year has been no exception.
We would like to thank all the students who participated, the teachers and their schools who supported and encouraged them. The Youth Committee who worked hard to organise the event. A special thanks to the Board of Tipperary Credit Union who always has the vision and belief in encouraging and supporting our younger members. John Gaynor Memorial Student Scholarship Scheme Tipperary Credit Union operates a Student Scholarship Scheme for members entering the first year of a recognised Third Level or Post Leaving Cert course. The John Gaynor memorial scholarship is an open draw, and is not based on academic achievement.
One lucky student each year qualifies for this scholarship.
The scholarship is available to students undertaking Third Level Courses or Trade Apprenticeships.
The Scholarship will be paid at a rate of €1500 per annum for a maximum of four years or the course duration whichever is the less.
2nd Prize: A second prize for an Apple iPad will be drawn from entrants remaining after the scholarship draw has taken place.
We would encourage anyone who is hoping to enter Third Level next year to enter the draw. Click on the link below to find out more about the John Gaynor Student Scholarship Scheme https://www.tipperarycu.ie/student-scholarship-scheme/.
