The Naughton Foundation was established by philanthropists Dr Martin and Carmel Naughton.

Billionaire businessman and engineer, Martin Naughton is the founder of Glen Dimplex; the company previously had a manufacturing facility in Tralee, but it closed in 2006 with the loss of 70 jobs.

Students are invited to apply if they are currently attending secondary schools in Kerry, and if they are studying two or more of the following subjects - physics, chemistry, biology, engineering, mathematics, and applied mathematics.
