Government of Ireland Postgraduate Scholarship Programme 2019

Date:- 12-11-2018

The Government of Ireland Postgraduate Scholarship Programme is an established national initiative, funded by the Department of Education and Skills and managed by the Council. In 2017, we invested in a total of 1,179 postgraduate scholars, with over 5,000 individual scholarships for excellent research awarded to date. 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 eco-system. Among its features are: individual, prestigious awards for excellent research in the name of the applicant; an objective selection process using international, independent expert peer review; funding across all disciplines, from archaeology to zoology; with the exception of those funded by our strategic funding partners, awards for bottom-up, non-directed research. The programme provides outstanding students with the opportunity to direct their own research at the early-career stage, working with a supervisor, in their chosen area of interest. 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 Scholarships Programme is highly competitive, with an average success rate of 19% over the last five years. Successful applicants who become scholars under the programme are recognised as demonstrating world-class potential as future research leaders and in the quality of their ideas.
