The Irish Research Council Government of Ireland Postgraduate Scholarship Scheme 2022 is now open with the applicant deadline on 16.00 (Irish time) on the 21st October 2021 (see below for key dates).

Success in securing these prestigious awards can be significantly increased by taking a strategic approach to writing the proposal.

With this in mind, we are holding an online IRC Workshop, where previously successful applicants and supervisors will share their experiences of crafting high quality proposals. The Graduate School will also present key details of the scholarship scheme – vital information if you are considering an application.
