General

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 http://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.
