The Government of Ireland International Education Scholarships Programme (GOI-IES) 2023 Call has been released with pleasure by the Higher Education Authority (HEA). The initiative will award 60 scholarships to successful applicants who have been offered a spot at an eligible Irish higher education institution for a year of study at the Masters or PhD level.
Deadline for Submissions: March 24, 2023
Students from non-EU/EEA nations are eligible for the offer, which is applicable to all academic fields.
The 2023 GOI-IES program seeks to demonstrate Ireland’s involvement in its prospective partner nations. The program is run in the higher education sector and funded through a collaboration between the Government of Ireland and the institutions of higher learning (HEIs). The branding of scholarships as prestigious awards reflects the key messages about Ireland as a hub of global innovation, research, and education. With every scholarship recipient, it is anticipated that more prospective students will become aware of Ireland as a center of excellence on a global scale.
Candidates must exhibit
- A history of exceptional academic achievement
- Outstanding communication abilities;
- Involvement in extracurricular activities. Humanitarian work, local, national, or international politics, the arts, and sports are a few examples.
- A compelling argument for why they should continue their education in ireland and how a goi-ies will help them achieve their long-term objectives.
Scholarships should be viewed as very desirable and beneficial to people’s future lives and jobs. As a result, the GOI-IES will be given to:
• outstanding higher education students from non-EU/EEA nations.
• to students spending a year studying abroad in Ireland.
Successful students will receive:
- A scholarship stipend of €10,000 for one academic year
- Payment of all tuition and other fees associated with enrollment at the higher education institution in full
- The hea will give the student a scholarship worth €10,000 for one academic year (via the hei that the student is enrolled in). The purpose of this fund is to pay for living expenses and educational costs. The scholarship may cover either one year of a research program or one year of a taught master’s degree program (e.g. One year of a 2-year research masters or a 3-4-year phd programme).
- The awarded applicant’s host higher education institution (HEI) will receive the scholarship stipend. The HEI will then set up a system to transfer the money to the recipient of the award.
- The HEI must provide the student with a COMPLETE fee waiver during the scholarship year. This is the bare minimum in matching funds that institutions will have to contribute to the scholarship program.
- The Government of Ireland International Education Scholarships are anticipated to fund a total of 60 scholarships for the academic year 2023–2024.
