If you are an Entrance Exhibitioner, you might also be eligible to be a ‘Sizar’ and to have your evening meal in Trinity free of charge during your first and second year. Sizarships have been a part of the College’s history for much longer than Entrance Exhibitions, dating back to the 17th century. Oliver Goldsmith, novelist and playwright, was a Sizar, along with a number of past Provosts of the College.
Applications for Sizarships are made to the Academic Registry before 15th October each year (please contact firstname.lastname@example.org).
Further scholarships and awards are available if you take special exams, as are other financial supports to students. You can check these out at http://www.tcd.ie/study/undergraduate/scholarships-funding
