         The Aisling Bursaries, launched in March 2000, are an
         educational initiative between Belfast Media Group and West
         Belfast Partnership.

         Over the past ten years £365,000 has been distributed to 402
         aspiring learners from the west of the city.

         More and more local and international businesses are taking
         part in this very successful bursary programme.

         The Aisling Bursaries are designed to help students defray
         their education and training costs. All applications are
         considered, with special consideration given to
         candidates who have significant barriers preventing them
         from realising their full potential through education, for
         example economic or family circumstances. The Aisling
         Bursary Initiative also highlights the importance the business
         community attaches to education in developing West Belfast.

         Providing financial assistance to students from West Belfast is
         the main aim of this bursary programme. Some bursaries are
         specifically for those participating in vocational training.

         Each business contributes £1,000 for a full time bursary or
         £500 for a part time bursary
