The Grattan Scholars

The School of Social Sciences and Philosophy developed a prestigious scholarship programme - The Grattan Scholars - with the aim of advancing high-quality social science research and teaching in Trinity. The programme supports exceptional PhD students who have the potential to become future academic leaders and influential voices for social and economic development.

Scholars are chosen not only for their academic achievements, but also for their commitment to teaching and ambition to understand and improve society through their research and education.  Grattan Scholars also play a vital role in delivering high-quality and engaging teaching enriching the learning experience of our undergraduate students.

In the last decade, Trinity's Department of Sociology has developed an international reputation as a leading centre of migration research. We are delighted that has been possible to award one Grattan Scholarships to undertake research in this area, thanks to generous support of Trinity's alumni and friends.

  • Egle Gusciute joined Trinity as a Grattan Scholar in 2015 and is researching 'Who is Against Migration, and Why?' under the co-supervision of Professor Richard Layte and Assistant Professor Peter Mühlau.
