Universities Ireland, the body which promotes collaboration between universities in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, is offering two – three scholarships to students undertaking a recognised Master’s or the first year of a PhD programme (taught or research) in the other Irish jurisdiction. Dublin Institute of Technology is also a partner in this scheme, which has been running since 2005.
The aim of the scheme is to encourage outstanding students from the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland to cross the border to undertake postgraduate study and experience life in the other Irish jurisdiction. It has been conceived to support the continuing peace process in Northern Ireland and to train highly skilled postgraduates to contribute to a new phase of economic, environmental, social and cultural development for the island as a whole.
The scholarships are worth €15,000 (approx. Stg £12,000)
The closing date for applications for this scholarship scheme will be Friday 24th May 2013 (5pm).
