List of Scholars of Trinity College, Dublin

Announcement of new Fellows and Scholars of Trinity College, Dublin on Trinity Monday, 2013.

This is a list of notable individuals elected as Scholars of Trinity College, Dublin. Regarded as "the most prestigious undergraduate award in the country",[1] Foundation Scholarship ("Schols") examinations have been held at Trinity since its establishment in 1592.

Schols is awarded to those who achieve a first class honours average in a set of challenging voluntary examinations, held annually in January the week before Hilary term begins, which test a student's ability to "consistently demonstrate exceptional knowledge and understanding of their subjects".[1] Benefits include waived fees, rooms in college and dining rights at Commons. Typically, less than 1% of the undergraduate population is awarded the scholarship.

Many scholars have gone on to great acclaim in a range of fields over the past six centuries, both in academia and the wider world. Former scholars include two Nobel Prize winners, one head of state, numerous government ministers, an Academy Award nominee, and nine Provosts of Trinity College, Dublin itself.

The subject and year of scholarship are included in brackets after each awardee's name below.
