Academic Fellowships

The Mitchell Scholarship (Currently on Pause)

The Mitchell Scholarship Program is currently on pause. We will update our website once they resume accepting applications.

The Mitchell Scholarship Program awards seniors and recent alumni one year of academic graduate study in any discipline offered by any of the 11 designated universities in Ireland and Northern Ireland. While the scholarship seeks students of any discipline, they are especially interested in scholars who have intellectual achievement, leadership skills, a commitment to community and public service, and interest in the US-Ireland relationship. The award covers the cost of tuition for one academic year, accommodation expenses, and a stipend for living and travel expenses.

The Academic Fellowships Team is here to support you through all steps of the application process. If you are interested in connecting with us to learn more, please contact us at
