To celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Act of Disestablishment and to support Church of Ireland Ministry in the future, the Church of Ireland Youth Department has created a bursary fund to significantly encourage the number of young people undertaking mission and training experiences that would benefit ministry in the Church of Ireland

This fund will provide individual young people with small, but significant, bursaries to enable them to apply for teams, training, and placements that might otherwise have been financially challenging.  This is an Ireland wide project that we hope will support many young people over a period of 3 years.

CIYD are pleased to announce that we will be accepting applications to our popular funding scheme for Young Leaders for 2021.  The closing date for the first  applicants will be 25th January 2021.  We understand it may be difficult for anyone to plan ahead very far at this time in terms of team opportunities, internships, courses etc, but please do remember that the Young Leaders Fund exists to support Church of Ireland young people and to grow their faith development and skills.
