Government of Ireland Scholarships 2021/22-Fully-funded

Government of Ireland Postgraduate Scholarship Programme

Government of Ireland Postgraduate Scholarship Programme

There are hundreds of scholarships available for international students from a wide variety of sources such as the Government of Ireland, the Irish higher education institutions, and other organisations. These are awarded solely at the discretion of the individual organisations that set down their own criteria for eligibility. Students are advised to contact the institution or organisation of their choice directly, to obtain more detailed information.

The Government of Ireland Postgraduate Scholarship Programme is an established national initiative, funded by the Department of Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science, and managed by the Council. The Government of Ireland Postgraduate Scholarship Programme is unique in the Irish research landscape and complements other channels for funded postgraduate education in the Irish ecosystem. Among its features are: 
  1. individual, prestigious awards for excellent research in the name of the applicant;
  2.  an objective selection process using international, independent expert peer review; 
  3. funding across all disciplines, from archaeology to zoology; 
  4. and awards for bottom-up, non-directed research, with the exception of those funded by our strategic funding partners.

 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 Government of Ireland Postgraduate Scholarship Programme is highly competitive, with an average success rate of 18% over the past five years. Successful awardees under the programme are recognised as demonstrating world-class potential as future research leaders.

What we offer 

  1. a stipend of €18,500 per annum;
  2.  a contribution to fees, including non-EU fees, up to a maximum of €5,750 per annum; 
  3. and eligible direct research expenses of €3,250 per annum.
