The National University of Ireland Galway has opened the call for its 2018 Hardiman PhD Scholarship Scheme. The scholarships are for students seeking to start a PhD in September 2018, and are available for PhD programmes throughout the University, including at the Irish Centre for Human Rights. The Hardiman PhD Scholarships are fully funded for four years, with a stipend of €16,000 p.a. plus fees. They are aimed at:
High-achieving dynamic individuals, with drive and passion, who have an appetite for the research world and creativity, who thrive on intellectual excitement, and who will positively impact and shape the future for all in our society.
This is an excellent opportunity to pursue a doctoral degree and to join the community of human rights PhD candidates at the Irish Centre for Human Rights. I welcome proposals from potential PhD students in the areas of business and human rights, international humanitarian law and international criminal law. My colleagues at the Centre are also open to receiving proposals from prospective PhD students – you can find their research profiles here.
The closing date for applications is 16 February 2018. If you are interested in applying for Hardiman scholarship, please visit the dedicated webpage, which contains all the necessary information.
