Kate is awarded Memorial Scholarship at DCU virtual ceremony

KILKENNY student Kate Minogue (pictured) was recently presented with a Memorial Scholarship award by DCU at a virtual ceremony where 22 students received awards named in honour of 14 individuals who have played a key role in the life of DCU and in Irish society.
Kate, a former student of Presentation Secondary School and a current MSc in Digital Marketing student at DCU, was presented with the John Thompson Memorial Scholarship. This scholarship honours the memory of John Thompson, former Chief Executive of Associated Newspapers Ireland and Managing Director of The Star. This Master’s level scholarship aims to foster the connection between journalism and marketing.
Speaking at the event, Joe Quinsey, CEO of DCU Educational Trust stated:
“This year we have awarded scholarships to 22 students whose talent and dedication are a tribute to those remembered through memorial scholarships at DCU. John Thompson shone brightly in his own life and made a significant mark on society, so it is fitting that his legacy will be honoured and live on in a bright and gifted scholarship recipient like Kate Mingoue.”
The 22 scholarship recipients were selected based on their talent and dedication but also according to specific criteria set by scholarship donors.
