The Irish word Fiosraigh, which means to explore or inquire, underlines the purpose of this scholarship programme which is to promote the exploration and application of knowledge as part of DIT research strategy.
There are a total of eight different scholarship options in the Fiosraigh programme across all our research areas. Applicants should submit their proposal in association with a designated Dublin Institute of Technology R&D Centre or Institute. Assessment will be based on the quality of the research proposal and the educational background of the applicant, as well as on the alignment with the DIT research programme and with the specific objectives of the Scholarship scheme. Students already in receipt of a Dublin Institute of Technology scholarship or similar funding are not eligible.

Awards will be made on the basis of a defined proposal for the work with specified outputs. All applications to undertake graduate research must have the support of a potential supervisor, and of a Dublin Institute of Technology designated R&D Centre/Institute where the work will be carried out.
Candidates will have obtained a primary degree classification equivalent to Upper Second Class Honours (2.1) or above, in an area cognate to the proposed research topic.
