Scholars ages of 18 and 30 are chosen annually for one year of postgraduate study in any discipline offered by institutions of higher learning in Ireland (Northern Ireland is currently not participating). Applicants are judged on three criteria: academic excellence, leadership, and a sustained commitment to service and community. Scholarship provides tuition, housing, a living expenses stipend, and an international travel stipend. Application must be submitted electronically. The Mitchell Scholarship Program provides full tuition, housing (on-campus, when available), and a monthly living stipend (currently $1250 USD) for up to 12 months of post-graduate academic study on the island. Most programs run for nine months. Up to three additional months of summer stipend will be provided if residence on the island is required by the program of study (for a maximum of 12 months). One round-trip airline ticket between the United States and Ireland is also provided and booked directly by the US-Ireland Alliance. Each Mitchell Scholar is responsible for securing and financing his or her own health insurance while abroad. Refer http://www.us-irelandalliance.org.
