The Frank Ryan Bursary is a travel bursary that funds a design student (or students) wishing to pursue an international educational opportunity or a design project overseas. It is not a design competition. The Bursary, established by the Institute of Designers in Ireland (IDI), recognises Frank Ryan’s contribution to design education and is an IDI commitment to celebrating excellence and exploration among emerging designers in Ireland. The picture above is of the IDI President Barry Sheehan congratulating Colm Keller, last years winner, at the Gala Award Bursary Dinner in Dublin Castle. Read more about last years winner and the Awards dinner:

A single award of up to €5,000 will be made annually.

Eligibility of Applicants
The bursary will be awarded to a full-time design student of demonstrable ability who wishes to participate in an approved international educational programme, attend an international design event, or develop an agreed course-related project that requires overseas travel.
