Why One Of The Most Selective Scholarship Programs Could Shut Down
The program is the Mitchell Scholarship, which sends 12 recent college graduates to study at a university in Ireland and Northern Ireland every year. Run by the nonprofit US-Ireland Alliance created in 1998 to administer the scholarship, the program is more selective than Harvard, and some years it’s harder to win than a Rhodes Scholarship. But its founder, Trina Vargo, is nearing retirement age, and she’s worried that the scholarship’s bank account isn’t substantial enough to continue funding the effort.
