SCHOLARSHIPS


Since its founding in 1981, the Irish American Society of County Will has placed high value on keeping our Irish traditions alive. A few years later, when Fr Kevin O'Neill Shanley, O.Carm. proposed that we send a worthy high school student to study in Ireland, the board readily agreed.


The Society has, since that time, selected at least one high school student from the county to represent us at this six week, well supervised, exploration of Irish heritage, culture and people.  To date, we have sent 42 teens. Formerly the Irish Way Scholarship it is now the Irish Life Experience.


Applications are accepted in the spring each year. See www.countywillirish.net/
