Eoin Murray Memorial Scholarship in Creative Writing now open for applications

12 Nov 2019

The friends and family of the late Eoin Murray have established a fund to support the development of creative writing within UCC. Eoin was a poet and a musician, who valued creativity, authenticity and connection with nature and humanity, and he lived his life according to those values. With this scholarship, in association with the School of English, UCC, we hope to keep his spirit alive and to support others like him in their creative endeavours.


• The scholarship, which consists of a prize of €1,500, will be awarded to a student from any undergraduate degree programme within the College of Arts, Celtic Studies and Social Sciences, UCC. 
• The recipient of the Eoin Murray Memorial Scholarship in Creative Writing will use the monetary award to develop a body of creative writing over the summer period.
