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.
