Student Scheme

 The Student Scheme invites students across Ireland to apply to research and report on a particular issue in developing countries. It awards students with funding to travel to these countries to produce media projects focusing on development issues.

The 2018 Student Scheme is now closed. 

The Fund delivered information sessions across the country to prospective applicants to the 2018 Student Scheme throughout February and March 2018. Following sessions in Dublin, Limerick, Cork and Galway, we compiled responses to a list of the most frequently asked questions. Read here. These may be of use if you are planning to apply to the 2019 Student Scheme. 

Guidelines for the Student Scheme are available here
