Press Release - NUI Awards Ceremony 2023


NUI Awards Ceremony 2023

On the 28th November the National University of Ireland awarded grants, scholarships and prizes to 150 undergraduate, postgraduate, doctoral, postdoctoral, early career and established scholars. In total, more than €600,000 was distributed to recipients across the NUI federation.

The awards ceremony took place in Croke Park from 2-3.30pm.

The NUI Awards portfolio also includes grants in aid. Among these inclusion grants, is the new NUI Denis Donoghue award, which is funded by a donation from the novelist, Emma Donoghue, in honour of her late father.

The NUI Strategic Plan 2023-27 has Education & Research as a core strategic pillar, and under that it aims to:

  1. support students to reach their potential at all levels;
  2. financially support ambitious research of exceptional quality and celebrate and publicise research in member institutions;
  3. develop its supports for students from underrepresented communities and groups in higher education.

This strategic pillar is greatly supported by the NUI Awards programme.

“The National University of Ireland has been supporting students, recognising scholarly
achievement, and rewarding academic distinction in higher education since before the foundation
of the State. NUI has evolved a great deal since its establishment in 1908 but has always valued
learning both in itself and as a driver for good in our society. We are immensely proud of you, the
students and scholars of NUI, who continue NUI’s tradition of excellence in this regard.”

Dr Maurice Manning
NUI Chancellor
