It is with great pleasure that we announce the call for applications for the 2019-20 Dobbin Atlantic Scholarship Programme.
It is the objective of this programme to develop a new generation of academic, artistic, cultural and economic links between Atlantic Canada and Ireland. Scholarships will be awarded to Irish and Canadian applicants, in support of research trips between Ireland and the Atlantic provinces of Canada*, with the awards supporting research visits for a period of three to five weeks.
Successful research projects will explore areas such as:
- our common culture, history and heritage
- the potential of our shared resources
- scientific and technological innovation
Recent recipients of this award went to individuals in a wide range of fields, such as disability entrepreneurs, economic governance, social enterprise education, Atlantic salmon, traditional dance, stem cell research, family law and many more.
This programme is made possible through the generous continued support of the Dobbin family, and the Department of Foreign Affairs (Ireland), through the Emigrant Support Programme.
Applications must be submitted to ICUF by Sunday, 24th November 2019. For more information on the Programme and to find out how to apply, click here.
* the Atlantic Provinces of Canada are Newfoundland and Labrador, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island.
