 In an era of globalisation in higher education, a welcome feature has been the significant growth in collaboration between Irish and French universities. In recognition of the importance of such collaboration in benefitting graduates and preparing students for international careers, NUI and the French Embassy in Ireland offer this award to highlight the collaborative programmes which have been established between the NUI constituent universities and higher education institutions in France.

The NUI constituent universities are each invited to nominate a student who has particularly distinguished himself or herself on a collaborative programme. Dual degree programmes are particularly encouraged to participate. Each recipient is awarded a French Government Medal and an NUI Prize of €1,000.
