What is a scholarship or bursary?

Scholarships are generally merit-based, while bursaries are needs-based. Some are awarded for the duration of university studies, while others are awarded for one year only.

You can only apply for a Trinity Residential College scholarship or bursary if you intend to live with us for the full academic year.
