2010 Mitchell Scholarship Recipient
“Centre has helped me develop into more educated, well-rounded individual,” he continues. “I’ll leave knowing that I’ve not gotten to explore all that Centre has to offer (the downside to major requirements), but I’m grateful for the time I’ve shared here.”
The Mitchell Scholarship was initiated in 1998 to honor Maine native George W. Mitchell, who chaired peacekeeping efforts in Northern Ireland after a distinguished career in the U.S. Senate.
Awards are for one year of post-undergraduate study at any Irish university — northern or southern — and include tuition, room, a generous allowance for food and expenses, and travel. Twelve awards are given annually; the 20 finalists are interviewed in Washington, D.C., in late November.
Mitchell candidates should have distinguished academic and extracurricular records and have a special reason for wanting to study in Ireland.
All application materials must be post-marked no later than the established deadline, which occurs annually in mid-October.
