About the DCU Educational Trust

The DCU Educational Trust was established to advance the goals of Dublin City University. Since its establishment in 1988, it has raised funds to support capital building projects, student scholarships and research centres to help develop the modern, thriving university that exists today. The DCU Educational Trust generates financial support from individuals and organisations who support DCU's vision of transforming lives and societies through education, research and innovation.

About Dublin City University

In 1980, the National Institute for Higher Education Dublin was founded on our Glasnevin campus and, nine years later, was granted University status as Dublin City University. In its short history, DCU has grown remarkably in scale and has established an international reputation for the quality of its graduates, its innovative approaches to teaching and learning, and the impact of its research. It is now ranked among the top 50 young universities in the world (QS Top 50 under 50). Such achievements are based on a track record of academic excellence, cutting-edge research, innovative and inter-disciplinary degree programmes, and pioneering approaches to enhance the student learning experience.
