This Scholarship was founded in 1921 from the balance of the R. T. Martin Memorial Fund and a donation from Mrs Martin.
It is intended to assist students pursuing a course of teacher training who intend to teach in grant-aided school in Northern Ireland, to proceed to a Primary degree by part- or full-time study in the following University Colleges:
- Stranmillis University College
- St Mary’s University College
Candidates must have the necessary qualifications for entrance to the University, have good academic standing i.e. 2:1 or above and be experiencing financial difficulties. The value of the scholarship is up to £400 and may be increased if the candidate is not in receipt of an award from a public authority, if funds permit.
All awards are subject to funding availability.
The scholarship will be launched in August 2021.
The closing date for applications is normally in October, with winners identified by the Scholarships and Awards Group in November.
