DEADLINE: 24/3/2023

Background & Objectives

The internationalisation of Irish higher education is a key element in the delivery of a quality teaching, learning and research experience for students and staff and for building international engagement for the sector. The Government of Ireland - International Education Scholarship (GOI-IES) scheme was established under the Government’s International Education Strategy, 2010–2015 and expanded under the successor strategy ‘Irish Educated, Globally Connected (2016-2020)’. The next iteration of the international strategy for education, research and innovation will be available shortly. Attention is also drawn to the Department of Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science (DFHERIS)'s Ireland’s National Skills Strategy 2025 – Ireland’s Future, and the Department of Foreign Affairs’Global Ireland: Ireland's Global Footprint to 2025.

The aim of the 2023 GOI-IES scheme is to reflect Ireland’s engagement in target partner countries. The scheme is operated in the higher education sector and funded in partnership between the Government of Ireland and the higher education institutions (HEIs). Scholarships are branded as prestigious awards reflecting the core messages about Ireland as a centre of international education, research and innovation. It is expected that for every scholarship awardee, awareness of Ireland among many more potential students as a location of excellence in international will rise.  

Benefits for students: Scholarships must be regarded as highly desirable and value-adding to individuals’ subsequent lives and careers. In view of this, the GOI-IES will be awarded:

  • to high calibre higher education students from non-EU/EEA countries.
  • to students studying in Ireland for a period of one year.

Benefits for Higher Education sector: GOI-IES reflects Ireland’s commitment to excellence in the provision of higher education for both domestic and international students. It will: 

  • highlight Ireland’s strengths as a centre of international education and align with institutional strategies for education, research and innovation.
  • promote links with target markets globally. 
  • strengthen the internationalisation strategies of HEIs especially in the context of the system performance framework.
