DESCRIPTION AND METHODOLOGIES
In 2020, Trinity College Dublin offers Asylum Seeker Access Provision (ASAP) scholarships for students in direct provision who have studied in the Irish second-level school system, have or intend to have taken the Leaving Certificate or further education qualifications and are offered a place in Trinity in 2020.
These scholarships cover all fees (tuition, registration etc), an annual stipend of €1,500 (payable in monthly instalments), a laptop (where possible and practicable), on-campus food allowance, and public transport costs (within commutable distance of Trinity). The scholarships are open only to those living in Direct Provision or who are registered with TUSLA or the State for accommodation within Dublin or within a commutable distance. Scholarships are awarded based on a Central Applications Office (CAO) offer being made to the applicant, with a maximum of four scholarships awarded annually.
