Bursaries & Scholarships

The aim of the North/South Scholarship scheme is to encourage outstanding students from the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland to cross the border to undertake postgraduate study and experience life in the other Irish jurisdiction.  This year, Universities Ireland will offer four scholarships, each worth €15,000.

The history bursaries support students undertaking postgraduate study on a topic relating to the 1912-1923 period in Ireland, the decade of the First World War and the division of the island into the states of Ireland (Irish Free State) and Northern Ireland.  This year, Universities Ireland will offer two scholarships, each worth €13,000.
