An Experience of a Lifetime
My journey at the University of California, Berkeley, was nothing short of extraordinary — personally, professionally and intellectually. For that I am truly grateful for the support of the George Moore Scholars programme! I couldn’t possibly put into words just how this experience has benefitted me.
Studying at the University of Notre Dame has been such an incredible experience. The members of faculty teaching the modules are world leading experts and incredible people with a passion for human rights work. I feel like I am in the perfect place to enhance my growth and career development.
I cannot express enough how incredibly grateful I am to have been chosen as a George Moore Scholar. I feel so privileged to be in each and every one of my classes amongst the top musicians and singers in the country and the world. Royal Conservatoire of Scotland has really lived up to its ranking as third in the world for performing arts education. Thank you so much for allowing me the opportunity to study here.
It is impossible for me to express my gratitude for the George Moore Scholarship. It has provided me with more knowledge and opportunities than I could have imagined. My life has been changed. Thank you.
Studying abroad gives you such a new perspective. Having the opportunity to learn from and be surrounded by people who are trying to change the world in such a positive way has been amazing.
The George Moore Scholars programme is incredible for giving students the chance to do programmes that would otherwise be out of their reach. We can really bring back so much to Ireland.
George Moore Scholars allowed me to continue my education, bringing me closer to my dream of becoming an entrepreneur. I hope to follow in George’s footsteps and use my (hopefully) future success as a means for good.
The George Moore Scholars programme is the very thing I needed to make pursuing my postgraduate studies abroad possible.
entrepreneur & philanthropist
George Moore grew up in County Louth, Ireland. George completed a bachelor's and a master's degree at University College Dublin before emigrating in 1972 to undertake further study at George Washington University in the US, where he completed an MBA and a DBA. As the son of a shoemaker, George realised the transformative effect education had on his own life. He went on to become a serial entrepreneur and one of the founding fathers of the data analytics industry. The experience of studying abroad catalysed George’s potential. The George Moore Scholars programme intends to draw on the example of George’s trajectory and support people with talent and drive at a key stage in their lives.
