ONSF Information Session: Post-Graduate Funding Opportunities for study in the United Kingdom and Ireland

Ever imagined studying in the 'city of dreaming spires,' taking a place with a cutting edge research team at the University of Cambridge, pursuing an advanced business and economics degree in London, or pursuing peace and conflict resolution studies in Northern Ireland? Then, join us for an informative session on post-graduate funding opportunities for study in the United Kingdom and Ireland. Learn more about opportunities like the Rhodes, Marshall, Gates-Cambridge and Mitchell Scholarship programs as well as what it's like to take up a course of study in the U.K. This session includes general information on each opportunity, guidance on determining what might be the best fit for you given your academic interests, and what it takes to compete for such prestigious national opportunities. The session will also include an introduction to the critical components of these kinds of applications including a curriculum vitae (CV), personal statement, research proposal, and asking for strong letters of recommendation. NOTE: This information session has been scheduled in coordination with the Senator George S. Mitchell's visit to UT on Tuesday, November 13th. If you are considering making application to the Mitchell Scholarship program, you are strongly encouraged to attend Sen. Mitchell's presentation as well.
