Travel Grant

The Executive Committee of the Trinity Trust makes funds available to the Graduate Studies Committee for allocation to graduate research students for attendance at conferences related to their research or for students who wish to carry out research abroad to supplement research already undertaken in Dublin.

To apply for a Postgraduate Travel Reimbursement Fund, students must submit the online application form (available below) and supporting documents to the Office of the Dean of Graduate Studies. Before applying for a grant, students are required to obtain a recommendation from their Head of School, and a confirmation that the School agrees to fund 20% of the costs of the trip. Please note also, that, whereas the travel grant scheme covers costs such as transport / conference registration and attendance costs, it does not cover subsistence / food etc.

Awards are made quarterly and applications must be made in advance of travel. Students should note that awards are based on funds available and the number of applications. Therefore, grants cannot guaranteed.
