It is aimed at students with a record of excellence in creative writing, digital arts and media, drama, theatre and performance, film or non-fiction writing, including journalism.

There will be 15 scholarships available for this autumn. Medicine is excluded.

Students must attain a minimum requirement of 350 CAO points from a single sitting of the Leaving Certificate in six subjects.

Applicants will be interviewed and those who are successful will be made a conditional offer of their performance points in May.
