National University of Ireland Travelling Studentship

Prize: Other distinction


The NUI Travelling Doctoral Studentship Scheme is one of the University’s longest running competitions and has been in existence since 1910. Funded by the University from its own resources, it continues an earlier scheme established by the Royal University of Ireland, which preceded NUI.

The NUI Travelling Doctoral Studentship Scheme has as its main objectives:

- to encourage students in the NUI federal system to pursue research;
- to enable these students to undertake postgraduate research abroad, in the most reputable universities, towards a doctoral degree, or;
- to assist students registered in NUI institutions to foster international partnerships by undertaking substantial research periods overseas as part of their doctoral studies;
- to attract these scholars back to enrich the learning community within NUI.
