2013 George J. Mitchell Scholar applications to include a Sonru video interview
Sonru's Maiken O'Byrne attended a reception last week hosted by the US-Ireland Alliance to honor the 2012 class of George J. Mitchell Scholars. Applications are now open for the 2013-2014 Mitchell Scholarship which funds a year of postgraduate study in Ireland or Northern Ireland. Created in 2001, the Mitchell quickly became recognized as a highly competitive scholarship, vying with the more established Rhodes and Marshall Scholarships and this year, Sonru's video interviewing solution will form an integral part of the application process.

The US-Ireland Alliance, sponsors of the Mitchell Scholarship, was formed by Trina Vargo in 1998. The US-Ireland Alliance is a proactive, non-partisan, non-profit organization dedicated to consolidating existing relations between the United States and the island of Ireland and building that relationship for the future. Vargo, former foreign policy adviser to Senator Ted Kennedy, established the scholarship in 2001 and it was named in honor of Senator Mitchell’s role as chairman of the Northern Ireland peace talks.
