William J. Flynn Center for Irish Studies: $5,000 dollar-for-dollar match

On Giving Day, remember the students who take Irish Studies courses for a minor or graduate concentration in the Master of Liberal Arts program. These students are able to take Irish Studies courses through your generosity for scholarships.

Additionally, the William J. Flynn Center for Irish Studies hosts students from universities in Northern Ireland with a full academic year scholarship to study business, science, engineering and other courses at UST during their third year.

The Center also relies on generous donors to make this opportunity possible.

Pictured here are Jack Terrins of the University of Ulster and Michelle Killgore of Houston at our 2023 Annual Irish Gala. As one who has graduated with the Irish Studies minor, Michelle was a star as a spotlight student speaker!
