Thinking about studying in Northern Ireland? Consider applying for a scholarship through the Irish American Scholars Program. Each year St. Thomas nominates two undergraduate students to the Irish American Scholars Program. This program offers full-tuition scholarships to study for a semester or year at a Northern Irish university. Places are available at Queens University, University of Ulster, and Belfast Institute for Further and Higher Education. The scholarship pays Northern Ireland university tuition. Application deadline for the 2004-2005 academic year is Jan. 10, 2004.
