About us

The Naughton Foundation was established by Martin and Carmel Naughton in 1994.  It is a private family foundation and its goal is to support worthwhile causes in the arts and education.  In 2008 we decided to create the scholarship programme to increase our support for Leaving Certificate students who would like to study engineering, science and technology at third level in Ireland.  Originally the scholarship programme only applied to students from counties Louth, Meath and Monaghan however it has now expanded to cover sixteen counties and continues to expand every year. 


“Every year we are amazed and delighted at the extremely talented students who have been awarded scholarships. Not only do the students have very high academic merits but they all also possess a drive and determination to get the most out of their chosen degree courses and are all lovely people. We are passionate about the importance of engineering, science and technology in education in Ireland today and by supporting these students we hope in a small way to spread that passion to the next generation.” Martin & Carmel Naughton
