Waste of money on scholarships
Published 27/02/2010 | 10:03
Our government is passing legislation to fund the US-Alliance to administer scholarships for US students to come to Ireland to study.
This will cost €20m and fund about 60 students over five years.That's about €4m to send 12 students to Ireland for a year. As they say in the US, "do the math".
That works out at more than €330,000 for one student to "learn about our history, conflict etc.'' More than €300,000 to live here for a year?
