Drogheda Sail Training Bursary
Established in 2013 by Drogheda Port Company and Sail Training Ireland this bursary is the first scheme of its kind in Ireland. The purpose is to allow local teenagers the opportunity to experience an adventure that often has a profound effect on their outlook on life and allows them to reach their full potential. It inspires a good working ethic, motivation, confidence, resilience, a sense of adventure, and in some cases new maritime-career horizons.
The sponsors of the Bursary are Irish Cement Limited, Louth County Council, Drogheda Port Company, Fast Terminals Limited & Boskalis Irish Dredging
