Presentation student WINS SCHOLARSHIP
Alisha is, at present, in her first year of a Bachelor of Education Degree in
Mary Immaculate College, Limerick. In November, she was awarded an
All-Ireland Scholarship from J.P. McManus worth €26000.
The scholarship lasts for the duration of Alisha’s course and will be staggered over her
four year degree. The ceremony was held in the University of Limerick and Minister of Education,
Jan O’Sullivan, and J.P. McManus presented the award.
Only 150 students, North and South of the border, received the scholarships and the recipients
were chosen because of their superb Leaving Certificate results. Alisha is the only student studying
in Mary I. to receive the award in 2014.
This is not Alisha’s first academic success. She also participated in
The Irish Science Olympiad in UCD in 2012.
Alisha achieved 8 A grades in her Junior Certificate exams and her outstanding Junior Certificate
results in Mathematics earned her a bronze medal in The Kangourou Sans Frontier
Maths Competition earlier this year.
Alisha is not only a gifted student at Maths, she is also a talented musician and has played
the flute since she was in Primary school. She was also a valued member of the school choir
that won the All-Island Choir Competition in 2013.
