Government of Ireland (GOI) Scholarship Scheme 2018 - now open for applications!

Are you:
- entering your final year of undergraduate study in 2017-18 and,
- interested in pursuing a postgraduate research degree (research master's or PhD, not a taught master's) which will commence in October 2018?

The Irish Research Council has announced that its annual Government of Ireland (GOI) scholarship scheme has now opened. The GOI scheme is the main funding scheme that students would apply to to try and obtain a funded scholarship to pursue a master's by research or PhD (full-time) at DCU. Note that it doesn't relate to taught master's programmes. If successful, you would receive a tax-free scholarship of €16,000 per annum for up to 4 years, plus all your research fees paid for 4 years (research fees are €5505 or €4905 per annum), plus a maximum of €2,500 per annum in research expenses eg. money to travel to attend international conferences, to purchase a new laptop etc. DCU supports 4-year applications for PhD funding and 2-year applications for research master's funding.

The scholarship would commence on 1st October 2018 (next year) but the closing date for (online) applications as you will see below is 11 months in advance of this (1st November 2017).  

If you would like to pursue a research degree, are working on a research proposal or have a research topic that you would like to explore or acquire funding for, you will need to find an academic supervisor at DCU who will support your research at DCU and who will help put together a research proposal for your application. As this process can take time, we advise that you act now in order to put your best foot forward in respect of what is a competitive application process.

The Graduate Studies Office can also assist with putting you in touch with a potential academic supervisor who could support your application, so please respond to this email if you need assistance with this, or indeed if you have any further queries on the GOI scheme.

Further details to assist applicants who decide to apply will also be made available on the Graduate Studies Office website (under Current Research Opportunities) at the end of August.
