NUI Galway SU Enterprise Awards 2014 Now Open – €23,000 Prize Fund


SU Enterprise Awards 2014 €23,000 Prize Fund
The NUI Galway Students’ Union Enterprise Awards aim to unlock the potential of the students of NUI Galway to invest in their own futures today.
If you have an idea for a new business or a social enterprise then this can be the competition that can allow you to realise your goal. Students are invited to sketch out the initial proposals for their project or business and to draw up the plans they hope will make their idea a reality. The finalists will be given the chance to take their ideas forward and to set about implementing their projects with the assistance of a financial allowance, workshops and clinics.
The overall winner will receive a direct investment of €10,000 in their project to really help get it off the ground in addition to further guidance and mentoring to help bring the project forward, while two runners up prizes, each valued at €5,000 will also be awarded. The six final projects going through to the second stage of the competition will each receive a €500 bursary.
Closing Date for Submissions is 5pm Friday 17th January 2014. More information, submission template and competition rules are available here:

NUI Galway SU Supports “We’re Not Leaving” Campaign


NUI Galway Students’ Union is supporting the We’re Not Leaving – Galway campaign and encouraging all students to attend the Youth Assembly in Dublin on Saturday the 9th of November. We are providing a return bus to the assembly and tickets are on sale for €2 from the Students’ Union now. We will be leaving at 9am on Saturday. 

Aims of the assembly:

– To build a campaign that unites students, young workers and the unemployed to address the youth crisis.

– To produce a youth charter, which articulates demands to be placed on representative bodies, the state and society and which articulates a divergent social vision from the path of austerity Ireland on behalf of young people.

– To build a democratic infrastructure on the basis of this charter that can reinvigorate youth politics locally and nationally.

You can also attend the Galway meeting this Thursday 7th November 2013 at 8pm in the Victoria Hotel.
