Three Ireland launches new STEM scholarship with Trinity to fund diversity and inclusion initiatives
Posted on: 30 July 2021
Three Ireland and Trinity have today announced a new STEM scholarship partnership, which will fund the creation of 25 Three Ireland Scholarships for Women in STEM over five years and two Three Ireland Trinity Access Teacher Fellowships for three years.
The Trinity Access Teacher Fellows will play a crucial role in efforts to encourage the study of higher level mathematics in schools.
Three Ireland will provide a unique partnership opportunity to Trinity to develop and execute 25 STEM scholarships for women at undergraduate level. The scholarships, valued at €20,000 each (over a 4-year undergraduate degree) are aimed at attracting women from Ireland and across the world to study STEM subjects at Trinity College Dublin. The scholarships will be awarded annually over five years starting in the academic year of 2022.
The two Trinity Access* Teacher Fellows will be funded by Three Ireland as part of the Trinity Access Pathways to STEM Programme. Trinity Access partners with schools in areas of concentrated disadvantage and the Three Ireland Teacher Fellows will work with these schools to enhance the teaching of maths in the Junior Cycle. They will develop a suite of initiatives that will provide the supports for the teaching and learning of mathematics and computing across the Senior Cycle years. Each Trinity Access Teacher Fellowship will be valued at €75,000 per year for 3 years, starting in 2022.
