The School of Nursing and Midwifery is delighted to announce our PhD Scholarship Programme is now open for 2021. The programme offers both full-time and part-time funding options.

  • The full-time PhD Scholarship offers fees at the EU rate PLUS a stipend of €25,000 per annum for three years. A contribution of 120 hours per year to the School is required under this scheme.
  • The part-time PhD Scholarship offers fees at the EU rate for six years on the part-time register.  

The scholarships are aimed at  building research capacity within nursing and midwifery. The scholarships are open to registered nurses and midwives, who are excited by research, have a strong desire to discover new practices and knowledge through evidence-based approaches. We are particularly interested in proposals that relate to our research themes which can be found at .

Our PhD Scholarship programme offers a pathway to nurses and midwives to conduct research that advances innovation in practice, integration of care or health systems and enhanced health outcomes in their chosen field of study.

Prospective students are advised that they must secure the agreement and support of an academic member of staff in the school who will become the primary supervisor for the PhD in order for the application to be eligible to apply.  Successful applicants must register as a PhD student with the School of Nursing and Midwifery.
