The Mahon Bursaries are intended to support students undertaking one of our full- time, one-year campus-based Masters programmes (or who will register for it on receipt of a bursary). As such, applicants should be in receipt of a full or a conditional offer at the time of their bursary application.
Applications should include CV, and a personal statement explaining why you wish to study for a postgraduate archaeology degree at UCD and highlighting how you feel the bursary would impact your ability to do so. Successful applicants will be given the opportunity to assist the School in developing the School research facilities for students registered to one of the Graduate Taught programmes.
- A Mahon Bursary cannot be held in conjunction with another UCD Fee Scholarship. It is the responsibility of the applicant to advise the School if they are in receipt of other UCD tuition funding and which scholarship they intend to keep.
- A Mahon Bursary cannot be deferred and must be taken up the academic year that it is awarded for.
- Students who are awarded a Mahon Bursary and do not complete the programme will be required to return the full amount of the bursary to the UCD School of Archaeology.
