|COVID-19 is a massive disruption to Ireland’s education system. It exposes already vulnerable people to further educational disadvantage. It widens inequality and makes educational opportunities even harder to reach. Now is the time for swift action.
This is why Rethink Ireland has created the Education Innovation Fund 2020 – 2023. The Fund seeks to improve equal access to education and promote economic empowerment.
We created the Education Fund with the support of the Department of Rural and Community Development (via the Dormant Accounts Fund). We will match funds raised by applicants and we will provide cash grants and a variety of business supports.
The Fund is open until 5:00 pm on Monday, 8th March 2021.
