In collaboration with Diversity Abroad, Education in Ireland is pleased to announce the creation of a new scholarship program: the Inclusive Ireland Scholarships, which will support BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) students to study abroad in Ireland. With a commitment to providing academically rigorous and culturally immersive study abroad experiences for students from all backgrounds and identities, and a strong belief that diversity among our visiting students only serves to enrich our society and our campuses, Diversity Abroad is excited to welcome the inaugural cohort of scholars in Fall 2021.
The application for the Fall 2021 cohort opened this week and can be found on the program website: https://www.educationinireland.com/en/How-Do-I-Apply-/Tuition-Costs-Scholarships/Scholarships/Inclusive-Ireland-Scholarship-2021.html
The application will close at 11:59 pm PST on April 1, 2021.
