LIT Global Greening Project

This competition is now closed.


Limerick Institute of Technology is delighted to be partnering up with Tourism Ireland and Education in Ireland to launch a competition to win a scholarship to study at LIT, as part of the Global Greening Project.

We are offering one scholarship for our North American partner colleges. The winner of this fantastic prize will get a scholarship to study abroad in Ireland for a semester, as well as the price of a return flight to Ireland.

How to Apply

In order to apply for this wonderful prize, we are simply asking our partner North American colleges to ‘go green’! Here are some ideas:

  • Light your campus (or part of your campus), up in green.
  • Give a green theme to your college’s social media channels and website.
  • Ask staff and students to wear green in virtual meetings and/or classes.

Once you have decided how your college will ‘go green’, we would ask you to post pictures of your ‘greening’ on social media and tag LIT, as well as Education in Ireland (@EducationInIreland), and Tourism Ireland (@TourismIreland). See below for LIT’s social media handles.

We also applicants to complete a short application form outlining their reasons for applying. Staff can click here to complete the application form. Please note that applications need to come from staff in our partner colleges, as opposed to students.

Be as creative as you can! When posting your pictures on social media, we would ask you to use the following hashtags: #LITUpInGreen #EducationInIreland #TourismIreland #GlobalGreening

Once you complete your application form and send us pictures of your college’s greening, you will be entered into the draw.  If you have any questions please contact us at We look forward to receiving your applications!
