Government of Ireland Scholarship Update
We are delighted to confirm that the Government of Ireland Scholarship Scheme was recently launched for academic year 2022/2023. Full Details are available here.
A number of Non-EEA Postgraduate Law Students have been successful in obtaining this funding in recent years.
We congratulate MSc Law and Finance student Ms Victoria O’Gorman on receiving this prestigious scholarship in 2021/2022. Read her story below:
Prior to coming to Trinity, GOI-IES Scholarship holder Victoria O’Gorman worked as Senior Legal Analyst in the National Development Bank of Argentina (BICE) where she structured regulatory frameworks, credit agreements, and public work contracts to foster productive and infrastructure investments. After working for a corporate law firm in Buenos Aires, Victoria decided to pursue a career in the public sector and since then she served as Chief of Staff at a Secretariat of the Ministry of Security, advisor of Argentina’s public media holding CEO, and currently providing external advice at the Directorate General for Recycling and Circular Economy of the City of Buenos Aires.
Having experienced the difficulties that developing countries face to address their infrastructure gap and how their volatile political and macroeconomic conditions hinder economic growth, Victoria is now seeking an “MSc in Law and Finance” aiming to put these two fields at the service of projects towards sustainable development and social inclusion.
“My time at Trinity has been an amazing journey and has marked a turning point not only in my career but also in my life. Being part of this inspiring academic community has allowed me to expand my horizons, benefiting from an environment that strives for excellence, attending lectures with brilliant professors, learning hard-skills to leverage my knowledge as a lawyer, and sharing meaningful ideas within a broad and diverse international alumni network. I am deeply thankful for this opportunity and hope to bring out the best of this experience to tackle future professional challenges and advocate for a fairer and more equal international landscape”.
