Mitchell Scholarship recipients receive support for one academic year of postgraduate study at institutions of higher learning in Ireland, including the seven universities in the Republic of Ireland and the two universities in Northern Ireland. Students must have a record of intellectual distinction, leadership, and extracurricular activity, as well as personal characteristics of honesty, integrity, fairness, and unselfish service to others that indicate a potential for leadership and contribution to society.
Applicants must have completed an undergraduate degree no later than the summer before they enter an Irish university. They must be 18 years of age or older, but not yet 30, on September 26th of the year of application (those who turn 30 on September 26th are not eligible). More information at the Mitchell website.
