Education at the heart of a vibrant West Belfast

Over the past twelve years, the Aisling Bursaries – an initiative of the West Belfast Partnership Board and the Andersonstown News – have contributed £450,000 to assist nearly 500 third level students pursue their dream.

Bursary sponsors contribute £1,000 for each bursary and recipients are chosen from the hundreds of applications submitted by students. In the midst of an economic downturn, nevertheless, we’re confident the companies and entrepreneurs who have built West Belfast will continue to give back to our next generation of high-achievers just as we trust today’s recipients will continue to contribute to this community in the years ahead.
