+ Foundation Scholarship
Continuing students only. Not open to first-year students.
- Foundation Scholarship

Students in the Senior Freshman (second) year may compete for a foundation scholarship, which will go into effect at the start of the student's third year. Up to ninety foundation scholars are elected annually on the basis of performance in the scholarship examination, which is usually held in the week before the start of the second term. Foundation scholars are entitled to a range of privileges, including a reduction of non-EU fees to EU fee-level (approximately €6,000 per year), a free Commons meal every weekday evening of term and an entitlement to College rooms free of charge during the academic year. Foundation scholarships are held for a term of five years, meaning that students who continue on to postgraduate study retain their 'Schols' benefits. In addition to the tangible benefits held by Scholars, these scholarships are highly prestigious, conferring a lifelong status within the College. Successful candidates, those achieving an overall first class result in the examination for scholarship, are elected by the Board on Trinity Monday, which marks the beginning of the annual Trinity Week when the community celebrates high standards of achievement among students and staff. For more information, see here: www.tcd.ie/academicregistry/exams/scholarship
