Travelling Studentships

The Travelling Studentship Scheme, funded by the University from its own resources, has been in existence since 1910. The Travelling Studentships Scheme has as its main objectives:

  • to encourage the most able students in the NUI federal system to pursue research
  • to enable these students to undertake postgraduate research abroad towards a doctoral degree
  • to attract these scholars back eventually to enrich the learning community within NUI

While traditionally it has been the practice that holders of Travelling Studentships should be registered abroad for their studies, it is also permissible for the holder to register in an NUI institution and complete a doctorate within NUI, where the research programme involves a substantial period, or periods, abroad.
