O'Reilly Foundation

The Foundation supports a programme of scholarships to provide world-class educational opportunities for outstanding young Irish scholars to undertake post-graduate education in their chosen field and in an institution or university of their choice eg within the UK. O'Reilly Scholars are individuals who have an excellent academic record and have demonstrated leadership qualities as well as the potential and desire to make a significant contribution to the future of Ireland.

Applicants should have a first class or at least 2:1 honours undergraduate record to date with reasonable expectation of a first class or at least a 2:1 honours degree in the current academic year. Graduates with a similar high honours degree or with equivalent professional qualifications, or who are completing a master's degree and wish to continue their studies to Ph.D. or equivalent level, are also eligible to apply.
