DCYA Research Scholarship Programme 2015
The Research Scholarship Programme was established in 2001. The aim of the Programme is to develop research capacity in relation to children and the issues which affect them. Since 2011 the Programme specifically supports research projects directly relevant to the outcome areas of the National Strategy for Research and Data on Children's Lives 2011-2016.
The Research Unit of the Department of Children and Youth Affairs is currently undergoing a re-organisation and review of its working arrangements, as a result we are, unfortunately, not in a position to proceed with the DCYA scholarship programme in 2015. We apologise for any inconvenience caused and hope that you will be able to compete in future competitions funded by the Department in support of post-graduate research.
