Becas Irlanda/Ireland Scholarships

3 01 2008

The George J. Mitchell Postgraduate Scholarships

View the online application

The George J. Mitchell Scholarship is a national competitive fellowship sponsored by the US-Ireland Alliance. The Mitchell Scholarship, named to honor the former U.S. Senator’s pivotal contribution to the Northern Ireland peace process, is designed to introduce and connect generations of future American leaders to the island of Ireland, while recognizing and fostering intellectual achievement, leadership, and a commitment to public service and community. Twelve Mitchell Scholars between the ages of 18 and 30 are chosen annually for one year of postgraduate study in any discipline offered by institutions of higher learning in Ireland and Northern Ireland. Applicants are judged on three criteria: academic excellence, leadership, and a sustained commitment to service and community. The Mitchell Scholarship provides tuition, housing, a living expenses stipend, and an international travel stipend. Download a printable brochure.

How To Apply

We are now accepting applications for the 2008-2009 George J. Mitchell Scholarships. To apply, please go to the online application. Applications and procedures can change year to year so be sure to use the correct application form. Prospective applicants are urged to study the Frequently Asked Questions and the profiles of past Scholars to learn about the program, the selection process, and the qualities we seek in a Mitchell Scholar. On the basis of the application submissions, approximately 20 finalists are invited for interviews by the Selection Committee, which will be held this year on Saturday, November 17th, 2007. We also may conduct a number of semi-finalist interviews before determining the finalists.

Because the Mitchell program has only 20 national finalists for 12 awards, we expect that a finalist will be committed to accept a Scholarship if offered. The Mitchell Scholarship is only for one year and those who prefer a multi-year academic scholarship should apply for other fellowship programs. Applicants must be prepared to declare their priority interest in the Mitchell Scholarship if invited to be a finalist.

Questions about the Mitchell Scholarships can be addressed to the Director, Mary Lou Hartman, at 703-841-5843 or by email at hartman@us-irelandalliance.org.

    London Business School scholarships

    3 01 2008

    MBA scholarships

    We have a large portfolio of scholarships currently available to students offered a place on the London Business School MBA. Many of our scholarships have different application procedures – some are awarded solely on consideration of the original MBA application, whilst others require you to submit additional material.  If you are interested in being considered for a specific award, please make sure you read the instructions carefully and follow the required procedure.


    London Business School Annual Fund Scholarships
    Each year, London Business School awards a number of Annual Fund Scholarships to the most outstanding MBA applicants joining the full-time MBA Programme.  Usually awarded at the same time candidates are offered a place on the programme, these prestigious awards are based on academic and professional merit and the information supplied in the original MBA application.  Last year 35 Annual Fund awards of up to £20,000 were made across 18 different nationalities.

    Please note: Annual Fund scholarships are usually awarded to candidates who apply to the MBA Programme in Stage 1, 2 or 3 of the admissions process. We strongly recommend that if you wish to be considered for these scholarships, particularly the awards based on nationality, you apply as early as possible.


    London Business School Donor Funded Scholarships
    Many of our scholarships are funded through the generosity of individual alumni and friends, reuniting classes, our corporate partners, foundations and student clubs.  These scholarships are available to students starting the London Business School MBA in August 2008, who are not in receipt of corporate sponsorship.

    Please note: Most Donor Funded scholarships require offered candidates to submit a separate scholarship application by 5pm, Friday 30 May, 2008.  They are, therefore, only available to candidates who are offered a place on the MBA Programme in Stages 1, 2 or 3 of the admissions process.  If you wish to apply for any of these awards you must apply for the programme by Stage 3 at the very latest. Details on how to apply will be made available to successful candidates following notification of acceptance.  Scholarships are usually awarded in early June, and the Scholarships Committee aims to award as many scholarships as possible before the Reservation Fee deadline (20 June 2008). However, there may be some scholarships that are awarded after this deadline due to the number of applications we receive and the involvement of external committees.


    The scholarships below will be awarded to students joining our class in August 2008 (please note we currently only have scholarships for first year students).  In order to help you identify the awards most relevant to you, please use the links below:
