Trinity College Dublin has launched 40 fully funded PhD positions across a wide variety of disciplines. The 40 Provost’s PhD Project Awards are open to EU and Non-EU candidates and include an annual stipend of €16,000 for four years. These doctoral awards are generously funded through alumni donations and profits derived from Trinity’s Commercial Revenue Unit.
Commenting on the significance of the Awards at the launch, the Provost, Dr Patrick Prendergast said: “Research is the heart of what we do; it’s what drives this great institution, connected directly into our teaching mission. And, to stick with the metaphor, the heart needs to be constantly regenerated and pumped with new blood. Therefore a decision was taken last year to put money into PhD research projects; to offer 40 funded projects to Principal Investigators – or PIs – across all faculties, via a highly competitive application process”.
