Trinity Graduate Student Funding Awards FAQs

Do I need to put Trinity College as my first College choice on the GRADSAF?

For the Trinity External Research Studentships, the Krishnan-Ang Studentships and the TCA Bursaries in Economics and Finance, Trinity requires applicants to indicate the College as their first preference on their GRADSAF application to the University for admission.

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 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. For details see: Trinity Graduate Student Funding Awards: How to apply

I am a current member of another Cambridge College. Am I eligible to apply?

Students who have matriculated at another College in Cambridge are eligible for some of the graduate studentships and bursaries offered by Trinity College. Please check eligibility requirements for the specific studentships and bursaries you are interested in.

Can I nominate the same referees as I have for my GRADSAF?

Yes.

When are decisions likely to be made?

With the exception of the Trinity Eastern European Research Bursaries and the Arthington-Davy Grants for Tongan Students for Postgraduate Study, the outcome of decisions are likely to be known towards the end of March to the end of May, depending on which studentship/bursary you have applied for. The outcome of decisions for the Trinity Eastern European Research Bursaries will be known towards the end of July and decisions for the Arthington-Davy Grants for Tongan Students for Postgraduate Study are likely to be known by around December/January and June/July, depending on the application deadline date.
