Government of Ireland Postgraduate Scholarship (Master's and PhD) and Postdoctoral Fellowship Programmes 2021
Deadlines: 29 October 2020 (postgraduate); 19 November 2020 (postdoctoral)
The aim of the Irish Research Council Government of Ireland Awards is to support suitably qualified research master’s, doctoral and postdoctoral candidates pursuing, or intending to pursue, full-time research in any discipline. The programme provides outstanding students with the opportunity to direct their own research project at the early-career stage, working with a supervisor at primary postgraduate stages and a primary mentor at postdoctoral stages, in their chosen area of interest.
A number of Ireland government departments and agencies partner with the Council to support this award as a mechanism to deliver on their shared national objectives. The Council’s strategic funding partners for 2021 are:
Postgraduate: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA), Irish Aid, The Department of Business, Enterprise and Innovation (DBEI), Met Éireann
Postdoctoral: The Department of Rural and Community Development?(DRCD)
All Postgraduate awards must commence on 1 September 2021. All Postdoctoral awards must commence on 1 October 2021. Awards may only be deferred for reasons of an eligible career break.
