Ireland Newfoundland Partnership Education Bursaries
The Ireland Newfoundland Partnership (INP) manages an agreement between the Governments of Ireland and Newfoundland, to recognize the deep historical links between the two Islands and identify new areas for collaboration.

This Ireland-Newfoundland relationship is rooted in the significant pre-famine migration to Newfoundland primarily from the South East of Ireland. Today, over 50% of Newfoundland's population is of Irish origin, and these Irish roots are still visible in modern day Newfoundland culture. Contemporary economic relations focus largely on ocean industries, marine and geological resources, and information technology.

Each September the INP administers an education bursaries scheme to allow Irish third-level students and academics to engage with Newfoundland partners. The scheme supports undergraduate student exchanges, post-graduate research, academic research, and joint-curriculum development. If you would like to learn more about this grant scheme email info@inp.ie or phone 01 676 2843.
