Together with Education in Ireland, Go Overseas is excited to announced our biggest scholarship award ever. We’re offering 26 scholarships — 15 undergrad and 11 postgraduate scholarships — worth more than $290,000 in tuition waivers.
The 26 scholarships cover tuition at 12 universities, polytechnical institutes and private colleges throughout Ireland. Fifteen of the scholarships are for undergraduate semesters abroad and 11 are master’s and PhD programs in the fields of the arts, law, and medicine. While all applications will be judged on merit, 4 of the scholarships have been reserved for diversity to encourage more students of color, LGBT students, and students with disabilities to apply. Two lucky scholarship winners will also receive free round-trip flights to Ireland courtesy of Aer Lingus.
The amount of each tuition waiver varies by program and covers tuition only, not any additional fees, travel, or accommodation. The scholarships are only open to US students.
To apply, applicants need to fill out a short questionnaire, upload a creative Ireland-themed photo, and write a 300-word essay about why they want to study in Ireland. Applications are open now. You can find the application here (https://www.gooverseas.com/scholarships/ireland) and additional information here (https://www.gooverseas.com/scholarships/ireland/application-guide).
The deadline to enter is March 17, 2017.
