About the Equality Fund

The Equality Fund is available to staff and student applications on a competitive basis for equality projects within Trinity. The Equality Fund aims to facilitate equality initiatives and to promote and celebrate diversity in all areas of the University.

Initiatives covering the 9 grounds of discrimination will be considered:

  1. age
  2. gender
  3. marital status
  4. family status
  5. race and ethnicity
  6. membership of the traveller community
  7. disability
  8. sexual orientation
  9. religion and belief

Initiatives will also be considered for other diversity groups which may be of particular relevance.

Each round of funding will outline priority themes for applications (see Equality Fund Themes 2015-2016 detailed below).

The Fund is specially designed to facilitate innovative and creative equality projects. Staff and student initiatives are funded.
