George Moore Scholars Alumni Network Launch

On Monday 17 June, The Ireland Funds launched the George Moore Scholars Alumni Network and welcomed the incoming scholars who will embark on their studies in September 2024. 60+ new students and 13 continuing students will undertake their Masters studies in the US, Australia, UK and Europe in the 2024/25 academic year.

The event provided an opportunity for Scholars across different cohorts to exchange ideas, discuss their work and sow seeds for future collaborations. The 70+ attendees enjoyed a panel discussion with both alumni and new scholars; breakout rooms where they discussed big issues they care deeply about such as climate action, pressing global health trends, and technological innovation; and small table discussions to network further.

As well as financial support, it provides mentorship and access to a global network of fellow scholars to empower students to achieve their fullest potential and contribute to the global community.
