To Apply

Funding applications are submitted online directly to the Graduate School Office. However, Directors of Graduate Studies in centres and departments are asked to provide written comments on applicants and to select a limited number for consideration by the University. Very strong departmental support is essential for applicants. It is therefore crucial to discuss your application with the Director of Graduate Studies and the Departmental PG Funding officer in advance of applying.

If you have questions about your application, please contact Mitzi Ward (the University’s Postgraduate Scholarship Officer) at or on 024 765 73860. Please quote your student ID in the subject of your email.

Funding for International Students

The University’s International Office provides details of a number of other sources of funding relevant to nationals of particular countries or in particular areas of study – these include Ireland (e.g. O’Reilly Foundation), Japan, US and Canada, and Korea, and several others.
