Government of Ireland International Education Scholarships Programme

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
provisions of 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 education strategy is being examined.
Attention is also drawn to the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade’s Global
Ireland: Delivering in the Asia Pacific Region to 2025 strategy.

The aim of the 2022 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 and the higher education institutions (HEIs).
Scholarships will be branded as prestigious awardsreflecting the core messages about
Ireland as a centre of international education. It is expected that for every scholarship
winner, awareness of Ireland will be raised among many more potential students. is a national database of universities, colleges, institutes and providers of third level, CAO and PLC courses in Ireland. We operate a national search database of courses and colleges.
