The Fulbright Commission in Ireland annually offers Irish institutions an opportunity to contribute to the Fulbright Program through cost-sharing. These arrangements allow the Commission to increase the number of awards available and to maximize institutional involvement in the program.

Scholars are not expected to seek cost-sharing during the application process. The Commission will seek cost-sharing once it receives the panel of recommended Scholars from CIES.
