There are a number of avenues for securing PhD funding including the Irish Research Council's Government of Ireland Postgraduate Scholarship Scheme (link to 2017 call), UCD School of Computer Science's PhD Scholarship Programme (link to 2017 call). The deadlines for application for both of these scholarships are early November. The funding available is similar from both of these avenues - a tax-free stipend of approximately €16,000 per annum alongside payment of the PhD registration fees at the EU applicant UCD fee level and a sufficient budget for equipment, travel and publishing costs.
