The Government of Ireland and the Irish Universities Association have announced a scholarship scheme offering Indian students a chance to pursue their studies in Ireland with 10,000 awarded for living expenses and full tuition fee waiver.
Students can apply for this scholarship once they have an offer from an Irish University for a full time taught postgraduate Masters programme.
Ireland is reaching out to international students and wants to increase international students studying in Ireland from outside the EU to 25,500 by 2015. It is recognised that India will play a crucial role in this and in addition to the fully funded scholarships many of the universities are offering attractive scholarships to aid Indian students pursuing a study abroad experience in Ireland.
The Irish Universities are committed to strengthening institutional relationships with priority partner-countries such as India to include greater collaboration in mobility, research and teaching and there is recognition that India will play a crucial role in attaining this objective.
