Thank you to everyone who made a submission. There were 42 applications this round, as usual, the standard was very high which made the reviewers' task extremly difficult.

We hope to announce the call for TRiSS Travel Bursaries in October 2024. You should be notified of this by your school's PhD admin officer. Or else keep an eye out on our X/Twitter page.


Further information

The TRiSS Travel Bursaries are awarded to postgraduate research students, with a value of up to €750, for the following purposes, which roughly form an order of preference:

  • Travel to participate in academic meetings with personal presentation of the results of their research
  • Travel to engage in research relevant to their project and to collect material/information for incorporation in their own theses
  • Participation in an academic meeting without presentation of research
  • Participation in a training course or workshop

Students should note that awards are based on funds available and the number of applications and are not guaranteed.

Further, please note that, for an application to present at a conference, we will consider contingent funding. That is, if there is a conference you want to attend but you do not have funding for it, then knowing in advance that you have qualified for a TTB would then allow you to apply. If your conference application is unsuccessful, then you will not be awarded the funding. With such a system, we can both encourage students to apply for conferences that they otherwise wouldn't be able to, as they would not know if they could pay for it, and maximise the number of students we support.

Rules and Notes:

  1. It is envisaged that applications will be considered three times a year. Details on the January 2024 call will be released closer to the time.  There will also be a call in May 2024.  Please time your applications accordingly.
  2. The funding will only be available for the academic meeting/training course/workshop you are applying for.  Only 1 event per application will be allowed.
  3. Applicants must confirm support from their supervisor.
  4. Applicants must be research-based postgraduate students from TRiSS member schools.
  5. When calculating accommodation costs (for conferences and workshops), please note that Trinity Finance will only accept expenses a day before the event and a day/half day after.
  6. Please do not exceed the word count or you may be penalised.
  7. Retrospective applications will not be considered.
