The George Mitchell Scholarship funds one year of study in any field at a university in Ireland or Northern Ireland. Scholars, who must be U.S. citizens, typically complete a one-year graduate degree. Up to 12 scholars are selected each year; selection criteria include an exceptional academic record, leadership, and public service. The Mitchell Scholars Program pays for tuition, housing, a living expenses stipend, and an international travel stipend. KU students apply for nomination in the spring of their junior year or up to age 29 (as of October 1 on the year of the competition). The new application will be available in the spring, with the campus deadline being in late April of each year. Contact Dr. Anne Wallen (email@example.com) for more details.
Campus deadline for KU nomination: late April. National deadline for KU nominees: late September. For more information see the national website of the Mitchell Scholarship.
