Sara Dart, Vice President Education in Ireland commented, “Education in Ireland is thrilled to be partnering with Diversity Abroad to launch the Inclusive Ireland Scholarship program. Access to international opportunities is a question of equity, and providing these scholarships is one way we can meaningfully reduce that barrier to participation. Ireland truly is a welcoming destination for students of all identities and backgrounds, and we're excited for the Inclusive Ireland Scholars to join us in Fall 2021!”
