The Mitchell Scholarships were created in 1998 to interest the next generation of American leaders in the island of Ireland. It is hoped that Mitchell Scholars will develop an understanding of the relationship between Ireland and Britain as well as Ireland's relationship with Europe.

Prospective Scholars must have a demonstrated record of intellectual distinction, leadership, and extra-curricular activity, as well as personal characteristics of honesty, integrity, fairness, and unselfish service to others that indicate a potential for future leadership and contribution to society. There are no restrictions as to academic field of study, although the proposed course must be available at the university elected by the applicant, and the applicant's undergraduate program must provide sufficient basis for study in the proposed field.

Scholars will be eligible to attend institutions of higher learning in Ireland, including the seven universities in the Republic of Ireland and the two universities in Northern Ireland, for one academic year of graduate study.

The universities participating in the Mitchell Scholarships are generously contributing tuition and room for the Scholar. In addition, each Scholar will receive a stipend of $12,000 to cover other necessary expenses for the term of study.
