Na Píobairí Uilleann will award 12 piping scholarships for 2020.
We are aware that some summer schools may be cancelled this year due to the ongoing restrictions surrounding COVID-19. Successful applicants in 2020 will be able to carry their scholarship over into 2021, should their chosen summer school not take place. Alternatively, scholarships may be used to attend a course of piping tuition later in 2020 after previous approval by Na Píobairí Uilleann.
Successful applicants can attend piping classes at any of the following:
- Scoil Samhraidh Willie Clancy – Miltown Malbay, Co. Clare
- South Sligo Summer School – Tubbercurry, Co. Sligo,
- Scoil Acla – Cashel, Achill Island, Co. Mayo
- Joe Mooney Summer School – Drumshambo, Co. Leitrim.
- Catskills Irish Arts Week – East Durham, N.Y.
- Ceol na Coille – Letterkenny, Co. Donegal
Application must be supported by recordings of solo piping by the applicant. See application form for terms and conditions. Closing date for NPU Summer School Scholarships is Friday 1st May 2020.
