Trinity To Award Three Government of Ireland International Education Scholarships
Posted on 21 April 2015
Trinity College Dublin has been awarded three Government of Ireland International Education Scholarships in a very competitive process for 2015 - 2016. The awards are open to students from Brazil, China and India. The Minister for Education and Skills awards these scholarships to high-calibre students from key strategic countries who choose to study in Ireland as part of the Irish government's broader international education strategy.
Each scholarship will include a full fee waiver for a one-year taught Masters course, as well as a stipend of €7,500 to contribute to living expenses in Ireland. Students from all disciplines are eligible for the award. Students interested in the scholarship will first need to apply for the taught Masters degree of their choice. The applicants will then write a statement attesting to their commitment and connection to Ireland and how they will use this degree to develop that commitment as well as contribute to their home country. Applicants must be nominated by their academic Department or School, who can only nominate one student per region per course. The scholarships will be awarded based on academic merit and achievement, as well as the student's potential to creating a lasting connection between his or her home country and Ireland.
