Irish Government Postgraduate Scholarship Program in Research 2020

The Government of Ireland is offering the Postgraduate Scholarship Program, which is an established national initiative funded by the Department of Education and Skills and managed by the Council. In 2018, the government invested in a total of 1,193 postgraduate scholars, with over 5,000 individual scholarships for excellent research awarded to date. The Government of Ireland Postgraduate Scholarship Program is unique in the Irish research landscape and complements other channels for funded postgraduate education in the Irish eco-system. Among its features are:

  1. Individual, prestigious awards for excellent research in the name of the applicant.
  2. An objective selection process using international, independent expert peer review.
  3. Funding across all disciplines, from archaeology to zoology.
  4. Awards for bottom-up, non-directed research, with the exception of those funded by our strategic funding partners.

About the program:

The program 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 recognized that advancing fundamental understanding is achieved by integrating information, techniques, tools, and perspectives from two or more disciplines. The Government of Ireland Postgraduate Scholarship Program is highly competitive, with an average success rate of 18% over the past five years. Successful applicants who become scholars under the program are recognized as demonstrating world-class potential as future research leaders and in the quality of their ideas.

Eligibility criteria:

  1. Must have a first-class or upper second-class honors bachelor’s, or the equivalent, degree.

  5. Must not have had two previous unsuccessful applications to the program, including strategic partner themes.
  6. Must not have had two previous ineligible applications to the program, including strategic partner themes.
