The scholarship targets students who reflect Elmer’s multifaceted character, by rewarding a combination of academic excellence and involvement in extracurricular activities. Elmer, a native of Glounthaune, Cork, participated in numerous sports over the years, including rugby, hockey, kite-surfing and sailing. At the time of his death, he was a post-doctoral researcher at the Lawrence Berkeley National  Laboratory in Berkeley, California.

UCC is now accepting applications for the annual scholarship worth €1,500, which will be awarded to an undergraduate or postgraduate engineering student who has completed at least one year of study, and has obtained a minimum 2.1 grade in their most recent exams.

Applicants must also demonstrate that they have contributed in a tangible way to the university community, specifically through their involvement in clubs or societies.
The scholarship will help with the successful applicant’s course fees and living expenses, enabling them to have the kind of fulfilling college experience that Elmer enjoyed.
