Congratulations to the 2020 ICUF Summer Scholarship Awardees

For the past number of years, the Department of Modern Languages, Literatures and Cultures at Memorial University has partnered with the Ireland Canada University Foundation (ICUF) to send a number of Irish Studies students to Connemara to study the Irish language each summer and taste a bit of Irish culture. The 2020 awards were significant in that it was the first time that Memorial University awarded three Irish Studies students, having previously only had one or two awardees.

Unfortunately, the summer school was cancelled this year due to COVID-19 but we still wanted to recognize the outstanding achievements of our students. Therefore, we have still nominally awarded these scholarships and we are delighted to share with you the names of this year’s winners:

  • Meghan Hill (ICUF Summer Scholarship)
  • Cassie Perfect (ICUF Summer Scholarship)
  • Jaime Sheppard (ICUF Summer Scholarship)

In lieu of going to Ireland, the students will have a chance to demonstrate and develop their Irish skills through an online course organized by ICUF and NUI Galway.

Comhghairdeas leo go léir!
