The Representative Office of Ireland in Palestine is now accepting applications for the newly-created Ireland-Palestine Scholarship Programme (IPSP), which offers full scholarships for postgraduate study in Ireland for the 2019-2020 academic year.
The IPSP is part of Ireland's programme of assistance for Palestine, which supports the search for a lasting and just political solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. This programme reflects Ireland's longstanding commitment to the development of a viable, sovereign Palestinian state, as part of a two-state solution. Development of the education sector in Palestine has been a long-standing focus area for Ireland in Palestine. The IPSP aims to further broaden Ireland's support for educational opportunities available to Palestinians.
The IPSP supports students from Palestine to undertake one-year Master's-level studies in Ireland.
