NCBI is here to transform the lives of children and adults who are blind or vision impaired throughout Ireland, ensuring they have access to the same opportunities, rights, and choices as anyone else in society.


NCBI is keen to remedy the low levels of students who are blind or vision impaired attending third-level education by offering financial support through the Gerard Byrne Bursary. The annual bursary is awarded at €1,500 per year across the remainder of the student’s full-time degree.

The closing date for the 2022/2023 academic year is 12th August 2022. To apply and for more information, please visit Gerard Byrne Bursary
