The Graduate School in the College of Science, Engineering & Food Science offers a number of Travel Bursaries for students currently registered for a postgraduate doctoral degree (PhD) in the College of Science, Engineering & Food Science.

The purpose of these awards is twofold:

  • To enable students to present their work at an international conference
  • To facilitate the training of students who wish to acquire skills that are essential for their academic development, but which they cannot otherwise receive in UCC.

PhD student applicants can apply for up to €500 in financial support that may be used towards the cost of travel, accommodation and registration fees for relevant conferences or training courses.

It is anticipated that the College will award up to 8 Student Travel Bursaries.


The SEFS Travel bursary initiative is currently postponed. This call will be re-opened once the university physically re-opens.
