Are you planning to study in Ireland? Here’s your chance to have your bills paid for a year! If you’re a student from a non-EU/EEA country, you can apply for the Government of Ireland Scholarships until 29th March.
Each lucky winner receives a grant of €10,000 plus a full fee waiver to one of sixty higher education institutions (HEI) for a year of study on a Bachelor, Master or PhD programme. Students must have an offer of a place in an Irish HEI before they apply for the scholarship.
The scholarships are regarded as potentially very beneficial, so successful applicants are required to be high calibre students. But there are plenty of chances to win as the Government of Ireland Scholarship Awards are worth almost €2m in total.
Apart from the benefits for international students, the Higher Education sector in Ireland also benefits. The scheme, which has been running since 2012 promotes global links and helps in the development of Ireland as a centre of international education.
