The George Mitchell Scholarship
The US-Ireland Alliance established the
scholarship to educate future American leaders about Ireland and in honor of
George J. Mitchell, former U.S. Senator who served as Chairman of the peace
negotiations in Northern Ireland. Twelve
Mitchell Scholars between the ages of 18-30 are chosen annually for one year of
postgraduate study in any discipline offered by institutions of higher learning
in Ireland and Northern Ireland.
Applicants are judged on three criteria: academic excellence,
leadership, and a sustained commitment to service and community.
