In all, TGI will offer 35 PhD studentships tenable at participating Universities and ITs.  Each studentship is for 4 years and carries a tax-free stipend of €16,000 per year as well as an allowance towards student fees of €5,000 per annum.  In the table below, we have listed the research topic areas, the number of studentships available and a link offering further details on how to apply for studentships at that institution.

January/February 2012 Update: There are still open TGI studentships for distinguished applicants who qualify for EU student fee level.
