In September 2016, NUI Galway with the support of Galway University Foundation launched the Inclusive Centenaries Scholarships. Our ambition is to respond to the needs of migrant students living in Ireland to access a third level education at NUI Galway.
The Scholarship addresses the needs of school leavers in Ireland who have refugee status or who are applying for international protection in Ireland (or having been refused international protection, an applicant for permission to remain in Ireland). Their status as non-EU students means that they are eligible to pay full fees and are not entitled to apply for a maintenance grant. The scholarship is an opportunity for these high achieving students to apply for this Scholarship in respect of their fees and living expenses so that school-leavers from Ireland's newest communities have an opportunity to a their-level education.
