Loyola Institute School of Religions, Peace Studies and Theology MPhil Scholarships in Ireland, 2018

The Loyola Institute at Trinity College is currently accepting applications for one studentship of €5000 will be awarded to a student entering one of the School of Religions, Peace Studies and Theology’s MPhil courses starting September 2018.

The Loyola Institute at Trinity College is dedicated to education and research in theology in the broad Catholic tradition. Our central concern is the creative intersection of theology, Church, and society. Theology is a fascinating and vital subject that challenges students to think critically and holistically across a wide range of disciplines. It encourages students to think for themselves about the big questions of today and it enables them to be at the cutting edge of contemporary engagement with these issues.

Applicants whose first language is not English are usually required to provide evidence of proficiency in English at the higher level required by the University.
