The Trinity Equality Fund is specially designed to facilitate innovative and creative equality projects by staff and students across the university.
Each year, a fund (normally €10,000) is made available to staff and student applications for small grants for projects which promote equality in Trinity. Initiatives covering the following grounds protected in equality legislation are prioritised, but other diversity groups may also be considered.
- civil status
- ethnicity / nationality / race
- family status
- religion and belief
- sexual orientation
- traveller community
Each round of funding outlines priority themes for applications. For further details on the application and selection process, please see How to Apply.
Project proposals relating to these themes have been prioritised in the selection process
