Mary Immaculate College has new PhD scholarship
Mary Immaculate College (MIC) is accepting applications for a new postgraduate scholarship for students at its Thurles campus.
The MIC Thurles Postgraduate Scholarship is open to primary and post-primary practicing teachers planning on undertaking PhD studies at MIC’s School of Education (Post-Primary) – it is an excellent opportunity for teachers who want to engage in doctoral research.
The MIC Thurles Postgraduate Scholarship will provide a full fee waiver over four years for a PhD student conducting research in areas of school leadership and inclusive practices. The successful applicant will be expected to provide a maximum of five hours teaching assistance per week at MIC Thurles.
Speaking about this great funding opportunity, Head of School of Education (Post-Primary) at MIC, Dr Finn Ó Murchú, explains, “The MIC Thurles Postgraduate Scholarship sits within the context of the soon to be launched Centre for Leadership and Inclusive Studies in Teacher Education (CLISTE), and is being offered in the spirit of gratitude for the support offered by schools with our school placement programme. It is our hope that this scholarship will further strengthen our relationship with schools. The successful applicant will also assist with teaching at MIC Thurles and this in turn will add to the quality of our programmes at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels.”
Dr Finn Ó Murchú continues, “Our experiences in recent times have shown us that a repertoire of leadership skills is required to be drawn upon if we are to create the inclusive school experiences we desire for all learners. The MIC Thurles Postgraduate Scholarship offers the successful candidate a wonderful opportunity among a great team to add to our learning and to our engagement with best practices in this regard.”
