The Lir Academy is offering a Patricia Leggett Scholarship, which has been offered at the Academy for the past number of years.
This bursary is open to writers resident on the island of Ireland to support them to complete Lir’s one-year MFA in Playwriting at The Lir Academy, commencing later this autumn. The value of the support is up to €12,000.
It is a great opportunity for a budding playwright to train under the expert guidance of tutors Graham Whybrow, Karin McCully, Gavin Kostick and Thomas Conway.

In order to apply for the scholarship, applicants must be:
- Qualified to degree level

Applicants can submit a 45-minute-long complete play to [email protected] by Friday April 5th, 2024.
