Types of Scholarships in Ireland


Ireland provides scholarships of several kinds, both fully and partially funded. These scholarships are provided by colleges, universities, trusts, the Irish government etc.

The three types of scholarships available for international students are:

  • University Scholarships: Almost all the leading universities in Ireland offer domestic and international students scholarships. The scholarship can cover your tuition fees, living expenses, airfare etc. Maynooth University Scholarships, Trinity College Dublin Scholarships, and NUI Galway International Student Scholarships count a few.
  • Government Scholarships: The Irish government provides several scholarships to international students they feel as deserving. It is the Higher Education Authority (HEA) that deals with this. The Government of Ireland Postgraduate Scholarship Program is an example of it.
  • Scholarships Offered By Other Organisations: Apart from the abovementioned types, a few trusts and organisations offer scholarships to international students. They have their eligibility criteria. You can know more about the same if you read further. Fulbright Scholarships, Welsh Fellowship etc., are examples of it.
