Trinity Graduate Student Funding Awards FAQs

Do I need to put Trinity College as my first College choice on my University Application?

For the Trinity External Research Studentships, the Krishnan-Ang Studentships and the TCA Bursaries in Economics and Finance, applicants should indicate Trinity as their College of first preference on the University application form.

Will I automatically be considered for a Trinity graduate studentship/bursary, or do I need to apply separately?

With the exception of the Trinity External Research Studentships, the Louis and Valerie Freedman Studentship in Medical Sciences, the Krishnan-Ang Studentships, the Sir John Bradfield Trinity College Bursaries for Research in Biological Sciences and the TCA Bursaries in Economics and Finance, applicants are required to complete and submit a separate application form.
