Donate to Burren College of Art

Support a world where art and creativity really matter. Where time slows down, where space to create is given, and inspiration comes from the stillness of an ancient land. The innovative artists who benefit from a Burren College of Art education ensure a brighter future for us all. Your support is essential to making our intimate, experimental, immersive studio-based education accessible to the most committed students regardless of means.

Scholarship Fund

You can have a profound and long-lasting impact on the creative life of a young artist while also investing in our collective cultural future by supporting scholarships at Burren College of Art (BCA). Scholarships create a meaningful connection between students, the people who have invested in them, and the next generation of innovative leaders. These opportunities advance our students’ education, give them an advantage in their future career, and encourage them to give back to the community that made their education possible.
