Government Of Ireland Funded International Education Scholarships Programme (GOI-IES) 2024


The GOI-IES program provides financial assistance to exceptional foreign students who want to pursue master’s or doctoral studies in Ireland and it is run by the Government of Ireland. The Higher Education Authority oversees the program, which the Irish government sponsors and runs in collaboration with Irish universities. Sixty full-time master’s or doctoral scholarships are given out annually as part of the initiative. Participants in the program can pursue any field of study.


  • A Government of Ireland International Education Scholarship consists of a stipend amounting to €10,000 for one year of full-time study at the master’s or PhD level. 

  • The awardees’ host higher education institutions are required to give a full fee waiver to the awardees for the year of their scholarship.

  • Successful scholars will be expected to commence their studies in either September or October 2024.


  • To be eligible for a Government of Ireland International Education Scholarship, applicants must have a domicile of origin outside the EU/EEA/Switzerland/United Kingdom.

  • Candidates will need to apply for admission to a relevant master’s or PhD programme offered by an eligible higher education institution as per that institution’s admission procedures.

  • Applicants must have a conditional or final offer of admission to that higher education institution at the time of application and will be required to submit a copy of the same.

  • The offer letter must confirm that the student has been offered a place on a full-time programme as an international fee-paying student. In the context of the continued aggression of Russia in Ukraine, Russian and Belarussian nationals are not eligible to apply.
