The Irish Research Council for Science, Engineering and Technology (IRCSET) `EMBARK’ Initiative offers opportunities for suitably qualified individuals to pursue a postgraduate degree by research. The Scheme supports basic research in the broad areas of Science, Engineering and Technology.
The online application system opens on 13th of January 2010 for individuals hoping to begin postgraduate
research in the Republic of Ireland in 2010. Individuals awarded under the scheme must maintain their principle residence in Ireland during the term of the Scholarship and Scholarships must be held at a recognised third-level institution in Ireland.
While a majority of postgraduate Scholarships awarded by the Council are offered to European Union (EU) citizens or to those who are ordinarily resident within a member state of the EU, a proportion of awards are also offered to exceptional candidates who are ordinarily resident in non EU member states.
Scholarships are awarded only to those who will be full-time individuals and who will engage full-time in research during the period of the award.
Applications for funding under the scheme are accepted by an online electronic application system available at our website www.ircset.ie from the 13th of January, 2010. The deadline for applicants to submit applications is 5.00 pm (GMT/UTC) on the 10th February 2010.
