Anne Glusker, Director of the Mitchell Scholars Program, is making a special stop at the Honors College to talk to interested candidates. The Mitchell Scholarship is awarded annually to 12 outstanding future American leaders, and it funds a year of postgraduate study in Ireland or Northern Ireland -- in any field. You do not have to be Irish-American, and you do not have be a Celtic Studies major! Named for U.S. Senator George Mitchell, who played a pivotal role in the peace process in Northern Ireland, the Scholarship promotes the relationship between the United States and the island of Ireland.
The Mitchell is highly competitive. Selection criteria are: academic excellence (although there is no firm GPA cut-off), a strong record of public service, and a proven record of leadership. Tuition and housing are provided, as is transportation to Ireland/Northern Ireland and a living stipend. Programming throughout the year provides opportunities to meet with politicians, journalists, academics, advocates, writers, actors, and many others. Events include receptions, hikes, arts performances, and much more.
Whether you're a political scientist, a poet, a religious studies major, an economist, or a geologist, Anne Glusker, director of the Mitchell Scholars Program, would like to meet you and tell you more about the Mitchell!
