Students are being offered the chance to take part in a scholarship opportunity run by the Washington Ireland Program (WIP).
Liverpool is the only non-Irish University partner involved in the program which awards scholarships of $15,000 to Irish students and students with a commitment to the development of Ireland and Northern Ireland. Students take part in six months of personal and professional development which includes the opportunity to spend eight weeks in Washington DC, gaining invaluable practical experience by completing internships in either US government, media, business or non-profit organisations.
Executive Director of WIP, Bryan Patten, will be visiting the Institute of Irish Studies on Thursday, 1 November from 12 noon until 2pm to give students a unique opportunity to learn more about the program.
