A record number of almost 300 philanthropic and business leaders attended the 12th annual President’s Gala Dinner organised by the University of Limerick Foundation and held for the first time in a marquee on the lawns of the University campus overlooking the river Shannon. A fully-funded PhD scholarship programme to support excellence research with impact was announced on the night with proceeds from the event to support the initiative. The UL Research Impact PhD Scholarship programme has been established to nurture the next generation of researchers whose work will have benefits for industry, society, economy, culture and the world at large. Johnson & Johnson have pledged to support four scholarships through the fund.
