Trinity College Dublin invites applications for the Government of Ireland Scholarships in the 2022/23 academic session.

The aim of the 2022 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).
Scholarships will be branded as prestigious awards reflecting the core messages about
Ireland as a centre of international education. It is expected that for every scholarship
winner, awareness of Ireland will be raised among many more potential students.

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
