The U.S.-Ireland Alliance has established the George J. Mitchell Scholarships to educate future American leaders about Ireland and to provide tomorrow’s leaders with an understanding about, an interest in and an affinity with the island from which 44 million Americans claim descent. Scholars are eligible to attend institutions of higher learning in Ireland, including the seven universities in the Republic of Ireland and the two universities in Northern Ireland, for one academic year of graduate study.

UAA students will need an institutional recommendation as part of their application for the Mitchell Scholarship.  Contact Jill Taylor ( as soon as possible to schedule your interview for this institutional recommendation.  List Jill Taylor as the advisor on your online application and give her email address so she will be able to view your application and provide it to the review committee.  You will need to complete your online application by Sept. 15 so the UAA Committee has time to schedule you for an interview.
