The George Moore Scholars

One of the pillars of The Ireland Funds’ mission is education.

The Ireland Funds invests in high-quality education by supporting programs that widen access to and participation in third-level education, and extend a broad range of learning opportunities for students of all ages.

It was such a pleasure to meet the George Moore Scholars, these are Ireland’s brightest and best. I have no doubt every one of them will be successful in their various fields of study. George would have wished for them the happiest of futures.

George Moore

George Moore grew up in County Louth, Ireland. George completed a Bachelor and Master’s degrees at University College Dublin  before emigrating in 1972 to undertake further study at George Washington University in the US, where he completed an MBA and a DBA. As the son of a shoemaker, George realized the transformative effect education had on his own life. He went on to become a serial entrepreneur and one of the founding fathers of the data analytics industry. The experience of studying abroad catalyzed George’s potential. The George Moore Scholars program intends to honor the example of George’s trajectory in the selection of George Moore Scholars.
