Bank of Ireland invite young musicians to apply for Catherine Judge Memorial Award

The Bank of Ireland Catherine Judge Memorial Awards was created in memory of one of its employees who passed away in August 2005.

The award will be presented annually to an exceptional solo classical musician who wishes to pursue third level musical education.

The winner will receive a bursary of £5000/€6800 towards their studies and the school or society they come from will receive £1000/€1400 for the purchase of a musical instrument.

The Catherine Judge Memorial Award is open to students all across the island of Ireland who have achieved at least Grade 8 (ABRSM, LCM, Trinity, DIT or CIT) or Senior Certificate (RIAM) on their chosen instrument or voice and who wish to pursue third level musical education.

The award will be promoted through all music schools and secondary schools across Ireland.

This award has been created in memory of Catherine Judge, who passed away in August 2005.

Catherine had a great interest in music. She loved to see young people get opportunities to progress and develop. These are some of the reasons why this award has been created to commemorate her life.

She was somebody who believed in getting the most out of life, enjoying every experience, sharing it with those she cared about. Professionally and personally she always made time for people whether they needed a helping hand, advice, or just an ear.
