Government of Ireland Scholarships 2019/20

Government of Ireland Scholarships

DCU International will be participating in the Government of Ireland Scholarship Scheme and students may apply through the HEA application route for places on one year 'Taught Masters' Programmes.  The scheme is managed by the Higher Education Authority (HEA), on behalf of the Department of Education and Skills.

Following a competitive process based on an annual call for proposals from individual applicants, the HEA will approve a defined number of scholarships under the scheme to successful applicants. Government of Ireland International Education Scholarships will be awarded to high calibre students from non-EU/EEA countries to study full-time in Ireland for a period of one year.

The HEA will award a scholarship fund to the student (through the HEI that the student is attending) amounting to €10,000 for one study year. This fund is directed at covering student costs and living expenses. The HEI, ie DCU in this instance,  will be required to give a FULL fee waiver to the student for the scholarship year (i.e. tuition fee and registration charge are waived). This is the minimum matching funding requirement that institutions will be required to make to the scholarship scheme. 

DCU has confirmed its commitment to the GOI Scholarship Programme and it is expected that the following scholarships will be available through DCU's International Office

  • One tuiton fee waiver Scholarship at Taught Masters Level from each of the five DCU Faculties - visit for details of DCU Postgraduate Programmes
