Stepping Stones Scholarship

Stepping Stones Scholarships

A scholarship fund is available for study on taught MA programmes at the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance, University of Limerick. Known as the Stepping Stones Scholarships, there are two different kinds of scholarships available.

Stepping Stones Scholarships for Non-EU Students

These scholarships target international students on taught MA programmes at the Academy who have a demonstrable record in a performance and/or academic specialisation relevant to a programme of study at the Academy. Priority will be given to:

  • applicants experiencing demonstrable financial challenge
  • applicants from parts of the world underrepresented at the Academy
  • applicants with projects that resonate with the spirit of the Stepping Stones initiative: equality of arts practices, an interdisciplinary vision, and desire to build bridges between arts practices
  • applicants for programmes with a higher number of available places

The closing date for the Stepping Stones Scholarships for Non-EU students is 4pm, Friday 24th February.  .

Application Process 

  • Applicants must apply for the programme through the normal university procedures.
  • In the application form, where a candidate is asked to indicate how they will fund their study, they should indicate that they will be applying for a Stepping Stones scholarship (they should also include other forms of funding as appropriate).
  • The initial application for the scholarship should be coordinated by the course director of the programme. If a candidate has been offered a place on the programme and wishes to apply for the scholarship, they should send the following to the course director:

(1) A personal letter indicating how their application meets the scholarship criteria

(2) A letter from one of the referees included on their application form, indicating how their application meets the scholarship criteria

  • Once the course director has received this information and is satisfied that he/she would like to support this application to their programme, he/she should include a letter of support with the two letters from the applicant, as well as a copy of the application form and any relevant audition materials. This material should be forwarded to the Associate Director who will arrange to review applications with the Director and relevant course directors.
