UL Foundation Impact Report 2021 launched today

The Foundation I excited to launch its Impact Report 2021. It showcases the power of philanthropy across the University of Limerick campus over the last year.

On the role of philanthropy at UL, and particularly on its sporting facilities, UL Ambassador and Munster Rugby player, Peter O’Mahony, said: ‘The University of Limerick’s sports facilities are truly world-class. Among them, Munster Rugby’s high-performance centre on the campus offers an unrivalled training space.’

Speaking about UL’s new Immersive Software Engineering programme, Stripe’s John Collison said ‘From the most exciting startups in Ireland to the world’s most successful tech companies, UL Foundation has built a fabulous coalition to support the Immersive Software Engineering course.’

In addition to thanking the many donors who enable the work, this report showcases the array of projects UL Foundation has enabled over the last year, including:

  1. Helping launch UL’s new Immersive Software Engineering (ISE) programme
  2. Granting a total of €3.49 million to projects across UL
  3. Funding senior academic posts and post-doctoral roles
  4. Enabling more than 100 scholarships and bursaries
