Access to LLM degrees at Trinity College Dublin (TCD) is made easier through the number of scholarships offered to students. For the academic year 2018-19, several funding programs are currently open for applications including the Constantia Maxwell Faculty Studentship. This scholarship is valued at €5,000 which will go toward tuition fees and is funded by TCD's Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences.
The scholarship is offered in acknowledgement of the quality entrants to TCD's LLM programs and the contributions of its current LLM students to the Faculty and the Law School. It also aims to develop and support its outstanding and deserving postgraduate students.
The scholarship is open to both EU or non-EU applicants who will take full-time any of the four LLM programs at TCD that will start September 2018. The candidate must have his/her official Unconditional Offer of a place to the LLM program by 31 July 2018 to be considered. The four LLM programs at TCD Law School are as follows:
- LLM Master in Laws
- LLM in International and Comparative Law
- LLM in International and European Business Law
- LLM in Intellectual Property and Information Technology Law
Awarding of the studentship is based solely on academic merit. However, given the number of excellent candidates, selection is highly competitive. One studentship will be awarded for academic year 2018/19. The holder of this scholarship will be required by the LLM Course Director to engage in academic activities during the one-year course and must not hold other scholarships or grants.
Those who are eligible must send, no later than 1 August 2018, a one-page letter that contains the applicant's 1) full name, 2) TCD application number (which will be provided upon application submission), 3) the interest for being considered for the studentship and 4) the reason why the applicant believe the award is justified. The letter should be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org and the words"Constantia Maxwell Faculty Studentship" should be included in the subject line.
