Kerry Credit Unions have announced they will be sponsoring the Padraig Pearse Fund.
The sponsorship will assist adult learners who face financial hardship in completing their post Leaving Cert courses.
The fund is being administrated through Kerry Education and Training Board and will be allocated to students and adult learners returning to full-time education.
CEO of Kerry ETB, Colm McEvoy says this support will help greatly in increasing course completion rates.
The majority of credit unions offer education or student loans to their members to support their studies.
