Irish University Scholarships

The internationalisation of Irish higher education is a key element in the delivery of a quality teaching, learning and research experience for students and staff and for building international engagement for the sector.

The Government of Ireland – International Education Scholarship (GOI-IES) scheme was established under the provisions of the Irish Government’s International Education Strategy, 2010–2015 and expanded under the successor strategy “Irish Educated, Globally Connected (2016-2020)”.

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).

Many of the GOI-IES winners go on to become Education in Ireland Brand Ambassadors. You can see their stories and more news on the Education in Ireland blog.

Individual universities also have full and partial scholarships available for international students. Please contact the universities directly.
