The Government of Ireland Postgraduate Scholarship Programme is an established national initiative, funded by the Department of Education and Skills and managed by the Council. The programme provides outstanding students with the opportunity to direct their own research at the early-career stage, working with a supervisor, in their chosen area of interest. The deadline is on 31 October 2019.
Ireland Postgraduate Scholarship Programme: Pioneering proposals addressing new and emerging fields of research or those introducing creative, innovative approaches are welcomed.
Proposals of an interdisciplinary nature are also encouraged as it is recognised that advancing fundamental understanding is achieved by integrating information, techniques, tools and perspectives from two or more disciplines.
The Ireland Postgraduate Scholarship offers a stipend of €16,000 per annum, a contribution to fees, including non-EU fees, up to a maximum of €5,750 per annum, and eligible direct research expenses of €2,250 per annum.
- Applications will only be accepted in either the Irish or English language;
- In order to facilitate evaluation by the International Assessment Board, those submitting Irish language applications are invited to accompany them with an English language translation;
- Participation is open to proposals in postgraduate level research.
