SPIRe Graduate Scholarships 2017-18
Deadline now closed 

Deadline closed 19th June, 2017.

UCD SPIRe is delighted to announce a call for applications for the 2017-18 Graduate Scholarship scheme. The overall aim of the scheme is to attract applicants of the highest academic standards to participate in the UCD SPIRe graduate programme (PhD and Masters) and provide them with the training, experience and mentorship necessary to their professional development.

For EU and Non-EU PhD students, these Graduate Scholarships will comprise a full fee remission of the scheduled EU fee of the programme to which they are registered plus a tax-free annual stipend of €575, payable in eight equal monthly instalments.

For EU and non-EU Masters students, the Graduate Scholarships will comprise a fee remission of up to half the scheduled EU fee of the programme to which they are registered plus a tax-free annual stipend of €750, payable in eight equal monthly instalments.

All students are liable for the Student Centre Levy and for the tuition fees not covered by the scholarship.

In the case of PhD applicants, scholarships will normally be awarded for a period of one year in the first instance, normally renewable for up to four years, subject to annual review. For Masters applicants, scholarships are tenable for one year and are non-renewable.

All students in receipt of a Scholarship are given the opportunity to develop the practical application of their academic skills by ongoing training and experience of undergraduate tutorial teaching, assessment and pedagogical development. This process is a core component of this scholarship programme and it also ensures that our undergraduate students benefit from the expertise and knowledge of high performing graduate students. As with the formal taught component of the student's graduate programme, this is a required element. For PhD students, it will amount to 6 hours per week of professional training during each of the two 12-week teaching semesters, including up to forty two hours per semester of mentored undergraduate teaching. For Masters students it will amount to over 4 hours per week during each of the two 12-week teaching semesters, including up to twenty one hours per semester of mentored undergraduate teaching.

Please review the associated terms and conditions carefully. Application forms must be submitted on or before Monday, 19th June 2017. Applications should be sent to the School Manager, Dara Gannon at dara.gannon@ucd.ie
