The University of Limerick has launched new sustainability scholarships to encourage action on climate change.
The Faculty of Science and Engineering Sustainability Scholarship will see 10 funded PhDs focus on key areas of sustainable development.
The new scholarship scheme will support collaborative research, drawing on the expertise of scientists, engineers, computer scientists, mathematicians and designers to develop impactful and transformative solutions while protecting our natural environment.
UL President Professor Kerstin Mey said: “Given the importance of sustainability for this institution, this initiative is another exemplar of how we can draw on the treasury of talent that is our student body to attempt to solve the climate issues and grand challenges we face as a planetary community.
“This scholarship scheme is a way to contribute to the many facets of sustainability and a green approach. A key pillar of our development at UL is sustainability and with a strong 50-year history in leadership at local, regional and national levels, we are perfectly placed to take advantage of our position as a pioneering university and put it to excellent use in answering these grand challenges of our time.”
