The aim of the 2019 GOI-IES scheme is to reflect Ireland’s engagement in target partner countries. The scheme is operated in the higher education sector and funded in partnership between the Government and the higher education institutions (HEIs). Scholarships will be branded as prestigious awards reflecting the core messages about
Ireland as a centre of international education. It is expected that for every scholarship winner, awareness of Ireland will be raised among many more potential students.
Trinity College Dublin invites applications for the Government of Ireland Scholarships in the 2019/20 academic session.
Trinity College Dublin offers a number of scholarship opportunities for prospective and current students interested in study or research at Ireland’s leading university. Since its foundation in 1592, Trinity College Dublin has sought to assist students of limited means and reward academic achievement. Students are always encouraged to explore external funding options in their home countries.
