Michaela Foundation?… what’s that?


Michaela Foundation was inspired by the life of Michaela McAreavey. It offers young people throughout Ireland the chance to live its ‘Life Without Limits’ ethos by offering many programmes tailored to establish a happy,confident, faith filled life!

But what does Michaela Foundation do?

Michaela Foundation promotes values that encourage young people to  succeed in life fulfillment and happiness with faith, confidence and fun as their foundation.

Since its inception,  Michaela Foundation has strategically planned how they can inspire and encourage young people in Ireland to reach these values, and have already initiated two flagship programmes to achieve this.

Student Award Scheme

Michaela Foundation annually awards  fresher students with awards in Irish, Religious Education and General discipline, £1,000 each to assist with university fees. After carefully selecting worthy applicants, who we deem ‘Michaela Foundation Scholar’s’, the student awardees began writing a monthly blog, ‘View from the Student’. The blog allows the students to share their experience in their first year in university, from social scene to exam pressures.
