24 Sanctuary Scholarships available at the University of Galway

The University of Galway is offering 24 Sanctuary Scholarships to international Protection Applicants, refugees, Irish Travellers and vulnerable immigrant groups.

The scholarship includes a full fee waiver (excluding student levy), an annual stipend of €3,300, and ongoing support and academic mentoring.

The University of Galway Vice-President Engagement Dr Paul Dodd said: “The Universities of Sanctuary Scholarship Programme reaffirms the University of Galway’s commitment to respond to the increasingly multicultural and diverse society in which we inhabit and reflects the University’s strategic values of respect and openness.

We are delighted to provide this life changing opportunity and encourage you to apply to join our University of Galway community.”

The Sanctuary Scholarship Programme is part of a more comprehensive effort by the University of Galway as a designated University of Sanctuary to broaden participation among underrepresented groups and to challenge discrimination. The closing date for applications for Universities of Sanctuary scholarships is Friday August 4 at 12pm for postgraduate applications, and Friday September 8 at 12pm for undergraduate scholarship applications.
