Call for Proposals Government of Ireland International Scholarships  2013-2014


Background & Objectives
The Government of Ireland International Scholarships scheme was established under the provisions of the Government’s International Education  Strategy,
2010–2015.  It  will be operated in the higher education sector and funded in partnership between the Government and the higher education institutions
(HEIs).

The scholarship scheme  is  part of the implementation of the Programme for Government which indicated that the Government would “develop cultural and
diplomatic links with emerging markets including a scholarship scheme”.

Government of Ireland International Scholarships will be awarded to  high calibre higher education  students from non-EEA  countries to study in Ireland
for a period of one year.  The scholarships will highlight Ireland’s strengths as a centre of international education, promote links with priority countries and
strengthen the internationalisation strategies of 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 will be raised of Ireland among many more potential students and staff. Scholarships must be regarded as highly
desirable and value adding to individuals’ subsequent lives and careers.



Following requests from a lot of HEIs, the HEA has agreed to increase the closing date for programs for GOI International Scholarships 2013/14.  The brand new time limit will be Friday twenty first December 2012.
