Congratulations to the 2016/17 Kinsella Scholarship Winners!
Three engineering students in their senior freshman year — David Byrne, Amelia Feehan and Christopher Doyle – have won the prestigious 2016/17 Kinsella Scholarships.
The scholarships are awarded to students that have completed their first year of engineering study at Trinity and demonstrated outstanding potential in their field. They were established in 2014 through a donation from our Chief Executive, Eric Kinsella, and his wife, Barbara.
This is the second year of the scholarship and there are currently 6 recipients. The fund reserves allow up to a maximum of six scholarships to be supported simultaneously in perpetuity.
Eric Kinsella said: “Jones Engineering Group prides itself in the quality of our employees. Our investment in people has been one of the keys to our success. I know Trinity shares this view, and Barbara and I are delighted to be in a position to support tomorrow’s engineering leaders whom Trinity will be nurturing.”
“As a Trinity engineering alumnus, engineering holds a particular importance for myself and Barbara, and I want to invest in future generations of the profession.”
Congratulations David, Amelia and Christopher!
