MPhil in Philosophy

Trinity College Dublin

The Department of Philosophy is delighted to announce that a Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences Masters Studentship will be awarded to an incoming student in the MPhil in Philosophy programme in academic year 2016/17.

The value of the studentship is a €5,000 contribution towards MPhil in Philosophy tuition fees (EU or Non-EU) for the 2016/17 academic year. The Faculty’s studentship aims to support and develop gifted postgraduate students within the arts, humanities and social sciences.


This studentship is available to new entrants (EU and Non-EU) to the MPhil in Philosophy programme, for admission in September 2016. In order to be eligible, applicants must hold and have officially accepted an Unconditional Offer of a place in this programme by 15 June 2016.

Selection Criteria

Applications are assessed competitively with the sole criteria for the grant of the studentship being the proven academic merit of the candidate. It is accepted, however, that very many candidates with exceptional qualifications will apply to the programme. Thus the decision as to the recipient of the studentship is at the exclusive discretion of the MPhil Course Director and MPhil Course Committee.

As only one studentship will be available MPhil applicants are strongly advised to apply for all other funding and grants open to them. MPhil applicants are also expected to apply for the renewal of any Local Authority Scholarship they may have held as undergraduates.


This studentship is offered subject to the following conditions:

• The recipient must engage in full-time study and must register for the MPhil in Philosophy offered by Trinity’s Department of Philosophy, School of Social Sciences and Philosophy, in academic year 2016/17; • The recipient is required to engage in relevant academic activities as determined by the MPhil Course Director; • The recipient must not be a simultaneous holder of other grants, or funding or other awards (or any other awards with a similar monetary value).

How do I apply?

MPhil applicants who meet the above eligibility criteria will automatically be considered for this studentship and there is no separate application process.

The recipient of the award will be contacted during the week of July 4th.
