University College Dublin Announced as School of Record for the Nobel Week Scholarship Program

The Forum is excited to announce that the University College Dublin will be the official School of Record for the Nobel Week Dialogue Scholarship Program!

Fueled by a common belief that to change the world you need to experience it, EF College Study and The Forum, in partnership with the Nobel Prize Museum, have created a first-of-its-kind, high-impact student scholarship program, in collaboration with EF’s educational partner the Nobel Prize Museum. This interdisciplinary program, which combines an online project-based course, an international field study in Sweden, and attendance at the 2021 Nobel Week Dialogue, is dedicated to including students from diverse backgrounds.

UCD has a long and extensive involvement with the field of education abroad, making the university a natural choice to become the School of Record for this scholarship. “We are pleased to partner with the University College Dublin as our School of Record for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for students,” said Melissa Torres, President & CEO of The Forum on Education Abroad. “We thank our Board of Directors Chair Enda Carroll for helping us make this agreement with such an esteemed global university possible.”

From December 5-11, 2021, 10 students from diverse backgrounds will participate in an immersive experience at the 2021 Nobel Week Dialogue: a collaborative event that brings together some of the world’s leading scientists, policy makers, and thinkers to explore scientific topics through a global lens. Students’ final projects may be displayed at the Nobel Prize Museum at the completion of the course.

The deadline to submit applications for this year’s scholarship was in May 2021 and instructors are currently interviewing potential students for the program now. Stay tuned for more information about our scholarship recipients!
