Ireland: EC-funded Scholarships for Citizens of ENP Countries and Russia to Obtain an MA in European Studies

The European Commission has launched a call to fund scholarships for the study of MA programmes in European integration. The scholarship of the European Commission covers up to €20,000 per student per academic year to cover fees and subsistence costs. For details on the scholarship, see this link. In total, approximately 150 scholarships will be available.

The UCD School of Politics and International Relations at University College Dublin invites applications to its MA in European Studies from citizens of European Neighbourhood Policy countries or Russia, who possess a first academic degree in either the social sciences or humanities (BA), and are in command of the English language.

Interested students should apply to the UCD School of Politics and International Relations through the normal channels by Wednesday, 28 May 2008, and normal entry procedures apply. For details of the application procedure, see http://www.ucd.ie/spire/grad_admissions.html. UCD will then recommend to the European Commission successful applicants to our MA programme who also fulfil the scholarship criteria. The European Commission will make the ultimate decision on the distribution of scholarships.

Prospective students not receiving a scholarship are free to either withdraw their application for the MA European Studies program of the UCD School of Politics and International Relations of the University College Dublin, or to seek alternative sources of funding.
