What is the iGeneration Foundation (IGF) Scholarship?

The iGeneration Foundation (IGF) Scholarship Programme at the University of Limerick (UL) for undergraduate students is open to students who are citizens of Georgia. The programme targets academically qualified, yet economically disadvantaged, young people in Georgia. For more information on this programme and the qualifications please visit

This is the fourth year that the iGeneration Foundation Scholarship has been offered at UL. UL welcomed the first students in September 2014 as part of this scholarship initiative. Aleksandre Zibzibadze and Elene Mindadze both graduated from the Kemmy Business School where Aleksandre was studying for a BA in International Business and Elene was studying on the BBS with Japanese programme. In 2015, we welcomed Giorgi Dolidze who studies Construction Management and Engineering. In 2016, Davit Korkelia joined the University studying for a Bachelor of Business Studies. In 2017, Elene Mindadze and Zurab Oshkhneli and in 2018, Nutsa Chichilidze and Shota Tsikhiseli joined Limerick as iGeneration Scholars. Read about each of our students' experiences
