NUI Travelling Studentships 2018
(maximum of €96,000 for up to four years)
The National University of Ireland is please to invite applications for the NUI Travelling Studentships, offered for competition in 2018.
The NUI Travelling Studentship Scheme is one of the University’s longest running competitions and has been in existence since 1910. Funded by the University from its own resources, it continues an earlier scheme established by the Royal University of Ireland, which preceded NUI.
Its main objectives are:
- to encourage the most able students in the NUI federal system to pursue research;
- to enable these students to undertake postgraduate research abroad, in the most reputable universities, towards a doctoral degree, or
- to enable students registered in NUI institutions participating in international partnerships to undertake substantial research periods overseas as part of their doctoral studies;
- to attract these scholars back to enrich the learning community within NUI.
At least five Travelling Studentships will be offered in 2018, on the basis of a common competition open to NUI graduates, in the Humanities & Social Sciences (including Business & Law) and the Sciences (including Engineering & Architecture).
In 2018 the value of a Travelling Studentship will be offered at a maximum of €24,000 per annum. This increase in funding will cover a stipend of €16,000 and may include a contribution towards fees of up to €8,000, where appropriate.
The closing date for receipt of applications is Friday 23 March 2018.
