Encouraging students to apply, the Provost, Dr Patrick Prendergast said:
“I warmly support the initiative of the TCD Trust to fund ways of enhancing extra-curricular activities for students during the pandemic. I recognize that many students are feeling isolated and disconnected from their peers in these difficult times, and urge students to get involved, to think of innovative means of engaging with their fellow students through clubs and societies, and through any actions that will improve the student experience.”
