Government of Ireland International Education Scholarship Program – The Deadline is Close!

Do you want to study in Ireland?

The Higher Education Authority (HEA) is partnering with the Government of Ireland International Education Scholarship Program in order to offer a total of 60 scholarships in 2020. The scholarships are provided for one year of study at Ph.D., Master and Bachelor levels. However, we do need to mention that the scholarships will be awarded only to successful applicants who have already been offered a position at an Irish higher education institution.

The Government of Ireland believes that the best way to make the world a better place and to promote thriving communities is by focusing on higher education. This is why the Government of Ireland International Education Scholarship Program was founded. With that said, let’s go ahead and check out what are the benefits and criteria of being awarded a spot in this scholarship program.

Government of Ireland International Education Scholarship Program:

Benefits

  • 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 program;
    • one year of a taught master’s degree program;
    • one year of a research program (i.e. one year of a 2-year research master or a 3-4-year Ph.D. program).
  • The scholarship stipend will be transferred to the host higher education institution (HEI) of the successful student and forwarded by that HEI to the scholar in two payments of €5,000.
  • 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). This is the minimum matching funding requirement that institutions will be required to make to the scholarship scheme.
  • It is expected that a total of 60 scholarships will be funded by the Government of Ireland International Education Scholarships for the academic year 2020/2021.
