The University College Cork in Ireland invites applications for the Excellence Scholarships (PhD) open to EU and non-EU students for the 2018/2019 academic session.

UCC offers a number of Excellence Scholarships every year to applicants who intend to start a PhD, PhD Track or MPhil degree in the College of Arts, Celtic Studies and Social Sciences in September 2018 or January 2019.  The scholarships cover EU tuition fees and are tenable for the duration of the student’s chosen postgraduate course.

The scholarships are open to EU and non-EU students. However, the funding will only cover the EU fee, so successful non-EU applicants will be responsible for the balance.

Applicants must have at least Second Class Honours (Grade 1) or equivalent in their first or subsequent degree and must have already applied for their chosen postgraduate course at www.pac.ie/ucc.
