STEM Study Abroad Scholarships
The Trinity College Dublin STEM Study Abroad Excellence Scholarship is awarded to a semester or year study abroad student who demonstrates academic excellence in their area of study and conveys how study abroad at Trinity will aid them in achieving their academic and personal goals.
Applicants must apply to study abroad in the Faculty of Engineering, Maths and Sciences at Trinity College Dublin on a semester or academic year basis. They must be declared majors in a STEM subject at their home university and must enrol in a minimum of 15 ECTS in STEM modules at Trinity.
Applicants must be fee-paying, as exchange students are not eligible for scholarships. They must meet the minimum requirements for admission, noting especially the minimum GPA of 3.3. Applications to Study Abroad in Trinity can be made here.
How to apply
Students must submit a personal statement of 750 words and an unofficial transcript to email@example.com by the deadline, with the email subject line of ‘TCD STEM Study Abroad Excellence Scholarship’. Students must also include their name, home institution, area of study, study abroad provider (if applicable), and confirm that they are not coming to Trinity via exchange.
The personal statement must address the following: “Describe how your study abroad experience at Trinity College Dublin will impact your approach to studying STEM subjects in future”
Criteria for selection
Students will be selected based on their academic performance to date at their home university. Performance in their major and minor subjects will be particularly relevant to their application, as will be the student’s personal statement. Applications which include personal statements of longer than 750 words, as well as incomplete applications, will not be considered.
Terms and Conditions of Scholarship
Awardees will need to be enrolled in at least 25 ECTS at Trinity. They will need to open an Irish bank account in order to receive the scholarship and will be required to provide receipt based evidence that the scholarship was used for tuition, room, board or airfare.
Awardees will participate in the Trinity Study Abroad blogger programme. Students in the programme are expected to write three blogs per semester for the World of Trinity blog. Further details on deadlines, length and blog criteria will be shared at the time of the award announcement.
