Purpose of the award
People, Children and Education Bursary Award supports the professional
development of artists by enabling them to spend time developing their
practice. The award is specifically focussed on helping artists to improve
their capacity to develop or present high-quality arts experiences with or for
children and young people. It is open to individual artists and practitioners working in a creative capacity in any artform, including arts facilitators, curators or programmers.
In addition, a recording of a webinar session recorded for
the YPCE Bursary Award 2020, Round 2, is available for potential applicants.
While most of the information is still the same for the 2021 Round 2 Bursary,
the following should be noted:
Budget: For this round of funding, applicants can only apply for one of three bands of funding, €10,000 / €15,000 / €20,000. You must apply for one of these figures exactly. If you apply for a figure that does not match one of these and
you are successful, you may be offered the next lower amount. Please note that your application will be deemed ineligible if you apply for more than the maximum amount stated above (€20,000).
Time Frame: as noted in the guidelines, it may take up to 12 weeks from closing date to decisions being issued. Applicants should schedule the start of their proposed bursary period and activities for which funding is requested with this in mind.
