DIT Fiosraigh PhD Scholarship Programme 2010


Dublin Institute of Technology invites applications for the DIT Fiosraigh PhD Scholarship Programme 2010. The Irish word Fiosraigh, which means to explore or inquire, underlines the purpose of this scholarship programme which is to promote the exploration and application of knowledge as part of DIT research strategy.

There are a total of eight different scholarship options in the Fiosraigh programme. Applicants should submit their proposal in association with a designated Dublin Institute of Technology R&D Centre or Institute.
