Costs & Funding Options for US Students Studying a Postgraduate Degree

The Government of Ireland International Scholarship scheme is operated and co-funded by the Irish Government and the higher education institutions (HEIs) and includes a full tuition fee waiver and a stipend of €7,500 to cover living expenses for one year.
This prestigious scholarship scheme is intended to support suitably qualified candidates intending to pursue full-time Masters in any discipline in an Irish higher education institute.
Dublin City University has waived tuition for Fulbright grantees enrolled on a taught Master’s Program within three of its faculty – one being the business faculty. Fulbright scholars will also receive a stipend of up to €15,000 covering travel, subsistence and accommodation costs.
