Research Walsh Scholars

The scholarships are called Walsh Scholarships to commemorate the late Dr Tom Walsh, a national leader in developing agricultural and food research in Ireland and the first director of both the Agricultural Research Institute and the National Advisory and Training Service, which were merged to form Teagasc in 1988.

The Teagasc Walsh Scholarships Programme is a postgraduate programme for graduates to undertake postgraduate research in agriculture, food, environmental science, agri-food economics, rural development, horticulture and other related disciplines.
