Research Walsh Scholars

The Walsh Scholarships Programme is Teagasc's postgraduate development programme. It is named in commemorate of the late Dr Tom Walsh, first director of both the Agricultural Research Institute and the National Advisory and Training Service, which were merged to form Teagasc, and a prime mover in developing agricultural and food research in Ireland.

The Programme requires that participating students achieve a level of statistical expertise in experimental methods appropriate to a Master’s or PhD programme. The topics researched cover all aspects of agriculture, horticulture, food, agri-food economics, rural development and rural environment, as well as specific topics identified for priority funding each year.
