    University College Cork

This scholarship was established by the Department of Management and Marketing (M&M), Cork University Business School (CUBS), University College Cork (UCC), in collaboration with the 30% Club, to help promote women in senior project management or HR roles

The 30 percent Club Ireland was founded in January 2015 with the goal of improving gender balance at all levels of Ireland’s leading companies.


About the Scholarship:

The University College Cork, also known as UCC, was founded in 1845 and is one of Ireland’s leading research institutions. UCC was renamed the National University of Ireland, Cork, under the Universities Act of 1997. The fact that UCC was the first university in the world to be awarded the international green flag for environmental friendliness is what gives it its iconic status. In 2011, it also became the first university in the world to meet the ISO 50001 standard for energy management. University College Cork was founded as one of the three Queen’s colleges for the advancement of learning in Ireland, with locations in Belfast, Cork, and Galway. It began with 23 professors and 181 students representing medicine, the arts, and law. The college was then absorbed into the Queen’s University of Ireland a year later. The location of the college was chosen because of its ties to Saint Finbar, Cork’s patron saint, whose monastery was located nearby at Gill Abbey Rock. Although the foundation stone was laid in 1845, UCC did not begin operations until 1849. According to 2016 data, UCC has a total of 21,000 students, with 15000 enrolled in undergraduate programs and 4400 enrolled in postgraduate and research programs. There are 2800 academic, research, and administrative employees. In 2017, UCC claimed to have 1,50,000 alumni around the world. Because of its unrivaled status as Ireland’s leading research institute in the faculties of Arts and Celtic Studies, Commerce, Science, Engineering, Medicine, Law, Food Science and Technology, and Law, the University College Cork has a research funding of over 96 million Euros. UCC plans to establish a Center of Excellence to conduct world-class research in the fields of nanoelectronics, food and health, and environmental science, according to the proposed strategy. Indeed, according to reports published by UCC’s governing body in 2008, it was announced that UCC was the first institution in Ireland to conduct research using Embryonic Stem Cells. The Royal Institute of Architects of Ireland has accredited the Cork Centre for Architectural Education. The University College Cork Teaching Hospital, which is Ireland’s largest medical center, is affiliated with the College of Medicine and Health at UCC. Students can study Chinese culture and language as part of the Humanities facility. The campus, which is located in a wooded riverside setting close to the city center, is a mix of early and modern architecture. The university is part of the National University of Ireland and places a strong emphasis on research while maintaining close ties to industry and the community. The Sunday Times has named University College Cork as Ireland’s University of the Year. The award comes on the heels of UCC becoming the only Irish university to be named Ireland’s first five-star university and improving its position in the QS World University Rankings for the third time. Ireland is a politically divided island, with the sovereign Republic of Ireland and the United Kingdom’s Northern Ireland. The lush green landscape and mild, changing climate give the “Emerald Isle” its name. Ireland’s diverse landscape, which includes coastal mountains, inner plains, and rocky shores, can only be described as picturesque. From the Ice Age to the Stone Age, the Bronze Age, the Iron Age, and so on, Ireland has a rich cultural history. If history isn’t your thing, you can always turn to sports. The most popular sports in Ireland are hurling and football, and fans take their championship games very seriously. Irish poetry, which dates back to the 6th century, is still very popular. Folk music and dance are a widely spread tradition across the island if you’re up for an Irish jig. Ireland offers the best of all worlds, with castles, abbeys, cliffs overlooking the Celtic Sea, rowdy rugby fans, and musicians of all kinds, and will be an experience not soon forgotten. Cork, Ireland’s second largest city, is situated on the island’s south coast. The city is a bustling seaport with a diverse economy that includes electronics, pharmaceuticals, brewing, and food processing. In 2005, the city was named the European Capital of Culture, and Lonely Planet named it one of the top ten cities to visit in the world; it hosts international arts, film, and jazz festivals, as well as lively performing arts and a growing artisanal culinary culture of cafes, restaurants, markets, and boutiques. Cork is located at the head of Cork Harbor’s inlet, with the sea to the south, mountains, hills, and river valleys to the north and east, and the well-known Killarney Lakes a couple of hours west.
