San-José - Dublin Sister City Programme Exchange Scholarship 2019 

- open for applications

"Throughout my scholarship year with DCU, SJSU and Cypress Semiconductor, I was in a state of shock and excitement. I was one of a few lucky Irish students who had made it to a global semiconductor's HQ in Silicon Valley. The experience, friends and career development obtained from this once in a lifetime opportunity will stand to me for the rest of my life" - Andrew Kiernan, 2013 San-José-Dublin Sister City Exchange Scholarship recipient
