We’re talking Ireland and education today.
The US Ireland Alliance, a non-profit that fosters commerce between the US and Ireland, has created one of the most prestigious post-graduate scholarships.
They’re called the Mitchell Scholarships – named after former Senator George Mitchell who was instrumental in bringing peace to Northern Ireland.
Each year the brightest students compete for 12 spots to study post-graduate in Ireland.
How prestigious? The Mitchell Scholarship has attracted students who have chosen it over the Rhodes Scholarship.
But the Mitchell Scholarship may lose its funding from the US State Department – at a time when we need more education and foreign exchange programs in this changing world economy.
My guest is Trina Vargo. She is the founder and President of the US Ireland Alliance, out of Washington D.C. – and the creator of the Mitchell Scholarships.
