With the Ireland Homecoming Study Programme (IHSP), Dun Laoghaire Institute of Art, Design and Technology seeks to incite children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren of Irish nationals to pursue their high education studies in Ireland. Winners will be offered to study in one of Ireland’s institutes of technology. They will also profit from the "Irish Diaspora tuition fee" of €7,500 per annum. Students will be offered to live with Irish families during the period of their stay, to furthermore enrich their cultural experience in Ireland.
Candidates must be of Irish origins and be at least 17 years old on January 1st on the year of application. A high school diploma that is equivalent to the Irish Leaving Certificate is required. It is possible to qualify through marriage or adoption.
