(iii) Sponsorship by Employers
Employers may sponsor an employee to pursue postgraduate studies by research within the Institute, or to attend a postgraduate course. Arrangements are made between the employer, the employee and the Contact person in the relevant School or Research Centre of the Institute. The work may be related to a problem identified by an employer as being of particular interest to her/his firm and expertise and facilities of the Institute may be of particular assistance in its investigation and solution.
(iv) Other Sources of Funding
Many International students studying in Ireland are sponsored by their own government or through other international scholarship programmes. In most cases applications should be made through the Ministry of Education in the student's home country. In the case of UK nationals only they should also contact the Irish Embassy in London for information.
The Irish Council for International Students administers Study Fellowships under the Irish Aid Programmes for students for Priority Aid Countries.
