Trinity Alumni Spring Week Internship Bursary
The Trinity Alumni Spring Week Internship Bursary was created in 2016 to support costs for talented undergraduate students who secure Spring Week internships with leading professional services firms. This bursary is open to Senior Fresh students of any discipline and is financed by Trinity alumni donors.
