NUI is committed to promoting greater social equity in Irish higher education through securing increased participation in the constituent universities by economically disadvantaged students.

The Thomas Crawford Hayes Fund Scheme

Thomas Crawford Hayes, son of Frederick W. Hayes, a mill owner, was born at Seapatrick, Banbridge, Co. Down, on October 18th, 1843. He entered Trinity College, Dublin, in November 1861, as an Arts student. There he won a Senior Moderatorship and was a Gold Medallist. Later he left Dublin for London, where he qualified in Medicine in 1870, obtaining the Licence of the Society of Apothecaries, London. In 1873 he obtained the MB, BCh Degrees of Dublin University, followed two years later by the MD Degree and in 1889 he became a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians, London. He resided in London from 1900 until his death on April 5th, 1909.  In 1922 Miss Isabelle Hayes bequeathed £27,600 to the National University of Ireland, in memory of her late brother. Under this scheme, each of the four NUI Constituent Universities receives an annual grant from the Thomas Crawford Hayes Fund, and is intended to be applied in the broad area of the Biological Sciences, as determined by the Trustees from time to time.

The Bequest

In 1922 Miss Isabelle Hayes bequeathed £27,600 to the National University of Ireland, in memory of her late brother Dr Thomas Crawford Hayes, for the purpose of founding or aiding a Chair of Biology in the University and also for the furtherance and promotion of natural knowledge. The scheme has been modified to the effect that the income from the fund is now applied in the broad area of the Biological Sciences, as determined by the Trustees from time to time. In recent years, a significant part of the funds has been allocated for the funding of PhD students.
