This prestigious scholarship programme offers unique mentoring opportunities for students and represents a new model of industry/sector mentorship.
Eligible students must be either a registered UCC student, on an undergraduate/level 8 programme (final year) or postgraduate programme at University College Cork.
Eligibility to apply
The scholarship is open to all undergraduate/level 8 programme (final year) or postgraduate programme students from all disciplines in University College Cork.
The selected students will become Puttnam Scholars for a period of one academic year.
During the year, the Puttnam Scholars will work together on a team project and will be required to attend a series of 6 video conference mentoring and coaching sessions with Lord Puttnam.
Puttnam Scholars will jointly produce a short film which they will screen as part of a presentation to Lord Puttnam and invited guests at the end of the academic year.
