2017 Government of Ireland (GOI) International Education scholarships

Ireland – 60 Scholarships available in 2017 for International Students

At the request of the Department of Education and Skills, the Higher Education Authority will provide 60 scholarships for one year study at Bachelors, Master or PhD levels to successful Irish higher education institutions in 2017-18 for students from non EU/EEA countries.  The offer is open to all fields of study.

Students who are successful will receive:

  • A €10,000 stipend for one year’s study
  • A full fee waiver of all tuition and other registration costs at the higher education institution

The call in the first instance is issued to eligible Irish higher education institutions who apply to the HEA for scholarships for their individual institution.  Following an evaluation process, awards are made to the successful HEIs who then offer the scholarships to suitable candidates.

Students who are interested in coming to Ireland should first of all secure a place at an eligible Irish higher education institution (HEI).  They should then seek clarification from the Irish HEI if the HEI  has been awarded scholarships under the initiative.
