Details of International Scholarships available to students and staff to undertake study, teaching and research overseas or in Ireland

Government of Ireland 2018

The government of Ireland International Education Scholarships will be awarded to high calibre students from non-EU/EEA countries to study full-time in Ireland for a period of one year.

The HEA will award a scholarship fund to the student (through the HEI that the student is attending) amounting to €10,000 for one study year. This fund is directed at covering student costs and living expenses. The scholarship may be for:
▪ the final year of an undergraduate programme;
▪ one year of a taught master degree programme or;
▪ one year of a research programme (i.e. one year of a 2-year research masters or a 3-4 year PhD programme).

➢ The HEI will be required to give a FULL fee waiver to the student for the scholarship year (i.e. tuition fee and registration charge are waived).

➢It is expected that a total of 60 scholarships will be funded by the Government of Ireland International Education Scholarships for the academic year 2018/2019.

➢Applicants must have a domiciliary of origin not equal to the EU/EEA or Switzerland
➢Scholarships may be approved for study across all disciplines.
➢ The HEA will seek to ensure that, overall, there is gender-balance in the cohort of students to whom scholarships are awarded.

➢ Successful Scholars are to commence studies in September / October 2018. Later enrolments will only be considered in relation to PhD awardees.
