LIT International Students Honoured at Government of Ireland Scholarship and Student Ambassador Awards Ceremony

Three LIT International Students were honoured at Farmleigh House, Dublin on Thursday April 21 at the Government of Ireland Scholarship and International Student Ambassador Awards Ceremony. Attended by H.E Afonso Jose Sena Cardoso, the Ambassador of Brazil and Minister Jan O’Sullivan TD, the ceremony honoured students who have received the prestigious Government of Ireland Scholarship, and also Student Ambassadors to the programme, for their contribution in attracting international students to study in Ireland.

Cliona Campbell, manager of LIT International Office said today: ‘We are really proud of LIT’s first recipients of these prestigious Government of Ireland awards. The students have received extremely positive reviews from their project supervisors and have successfully integrated into the academic community here at LIT. Our International Student Ambassador is also a very welcome addition to the LIT community and we look forward to hosting more students from Malaysia at LIT in the coming academic year’.

The Student Ambassador Programme, managed by Education in Ireland, sponsors high achieving students from nine countries (Brazil, Malaysia, the USA, Canada, India, China, Chile, Singapore, and Turkey) to study in Ireland. LIT’s student ambassador is Jin June Koay from TAR University in Malaysia, who is currently studying Quantity Surveying at LIT.

Ana Santos & Bruna Ferreira from Brazil were last year awarded with scholarships for postgraduate research in Applied Sciences through the Government of Ireland Scholarship Scheme. Their research projects involve an International Study of Anthropogenic Interferences on the Nitrogen Cycle in River Basins, and an Analysis of Hybrid Composites Reinforced with Sisal / Glass Fibres & Silica Particles. To date, these projects have been highly successful and have generated further research interest in LIT and abroad.
