Trinity College offers a number of scholarships for graduate students. Scholarships offered for entry in October 2018 are listed below.
How to apply for a graduate scholarship at Trinity
There is no separate application form for the College’s named scholarships. If you wish to be considered for a scholarship at Trinity, you must submit your graduate application to the University by the January deadline for your course. Full guidance on submitting your application for graduate study is available on the University’s Graduate Admissions webpages.
In order to be considered for the College’s scholarships, you are advised to nominate Trinity as your preferred college on the graduate application form, although the College’s final decision may not be restricted to those who have nominated it. Initial selection of scholarship candidates is made in consultation with the relevant faculty or department, which submits recommendations for final selection by the College. Any questions should be addressed to Trinity’s Graduate and Academic Administrator.
When you will hear if you have been successful
The College will make its decision after the relevant department or faculty has considered all the eligible candidates applying by the January deadline. In practice, this is usually in mid-April or early May. As soon as the decision is made, our Graduate and Academic Administrator will contact the successful candidate(s).
