The Irish Diaspora Education Alliance (IDEA), an initiative of the IDC, aims to offer affordable college opportunities in Ireland for American born students.

- Atlantic Technological University.
To be eligible for the program, applicants must:
- Be referred by the IDEA;
- Be able to provide completed High School transcripts;
- Be eligible for Irish citizenship at minimum through parent/grandparent (for some).
- Or show demonstrable engagement & participation in Irish cultural events.
The IDC is hosting a virtual information session about the IDEA program on 17 October at 5:30p EST. We invite you to register to HERE to learn more about this initiative, as well as share this opportunity widely with your community members; the session is open to anyone with interest.
This is a great opportunity for American students to receive an excellent third level education in an international setting – do not miss this opportunity to learn more! Further details can be found on the flyer below.
