The Global Travel Award of €5,000, is open to all students graduating from its BA in Fine Art and B.Ed Art and Design Teacher Education in 2024.
The award has been designed to offer the chosen graduate a unique opportunity to develop their future career. This is the second year of granting the award to a new graduate artist.

The Limerick School of Art and Design is honoured to be the only Art School in Ireland to offer such a prestigious travel award.
In order to enter for the Award, BA in Fine Art and BEd Art and Design Teacher Education students prepared a submission package with images of their work and most importantly provide a statement outlining what they could achieve with the travel bursary and how this will assist with their future creative development.

Hosted at TUS Clare Street Campus in Limerick City, the show opened to the public on June 1 and will be available to view from 10am to 5pm daily until Sunday, June 9.

The school operates on three of TUS Mid-West’s campuses including Clare Street and George’s Quay in Limerick City as well as at the TUS campus in Clonmel in Tipperary.
The school can trace its origins back to 1852, and has had a number of guises and locations before consolidating into its current format and campuses in the 1980s and 1990s.
LSAD offers courses at level 8 or honours degree, and level 9 or master’s degree, across a range of art and design disciplines.
