Funding initiative aims to encourage Cresslough students

An initiative has been announced for Cresslough that will see five lucky students being awarded €2,000 towards their education or apprenticeship ambitions in the coming years.

The ‘Aurivo Co-Op Creeslough Student Support Programme’ will support an individual student each year, for each of the next five years, from the Creeslough community.

The fund of €2,000 per student was fundraised directly by Aurivo employees in support of the Creeslough community.


Those behind the idea say it will not only help alleviate financial barriers but will also enable the recipients to access educational opportunities to establish them on their career paths.

Commencing in 2024, this initiative is in association with local secondary schools, where students from the Creeslough area will have the opportunity to apply for the bursary.

Sheila Maloney, General Manager of Aurivo Agribusiness, is enthusiastic about the programme.

“It is an extension of Aurivo’s commitment to education and training, empowering individuals and fostering growth within the communities we serve.  This commitment reflects our vision for a brighter future, bringing positive change for both the students and the broader Creeslough community.”
