Description

The Mitchell scholarship allows American post-graduates to pursue one year of study at an institution of higher learning in Ireland or Northern Ireland. The scholarship provides tuition, travel, living expenses, and housing. The academic field of study is open provided that it is offered as a degree or certificate program at an Irish university, and the applicant's undergraduate program must provide sufficient basis for study in the proposed field.

Eligibility

A Candidate for the Mitchell Scholarship Program must meet all the following criteria:

  • Be a U.S. citizen 
  • Be 18 years of age or older, but not yet 30, on September 30 of the year of application.
  • Have a bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university before beginning study as a Mitchell Scholar.

Selection Criteria

Applicants are judged on three criteria:
  • scholarship,
  • leadership, and
  • a sustained commitment to community and public service.

Approximately 12 scholars are selected each year from approximately 300 applicants.

Application Procedure

Interested students should use this form to request an internal application. The final application requires institutional endorsement, transcript, proof of citizenship, 1000-word essay, brief description of activities during college years, passport photos, four letters of recommendation (two of which are academic), and the submission of a video component.  Contact Michelle Johnson with any questions.
