This meeting should be attended by the treasurer of each society.
We are delighted to be in a position to offer societies the opportunity to apply to Bank of Ireland for sponsorship. Whether it’s for a society publication, an event (single or multi day), or simply for your society’s overall activities for the year, we look forward to seeing what plans you have.
This is the first year that this deal is in place, and we hope that it will really benefit your society, its activity and its members. Whether it’s for Michaelmas or Hilary Term activities, no sum is too small, and we are encouraging you to be ambitious! This is a great opportunity for your committee to think big and to push the boat out.
The link to the application is below, along with the key dates and deadlines. Please read the terms and conditions and be clear on the type of events that will not be considered. If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
– 16th October: Applications open and must be completed using your @csc.tcd.ie address
– 29th October: Applications close at noon

1st – 5th October is Fourth Week, Trinity’s dedicated Society Week.
All society events on the Fourth Week calendar are OPEN (you don’t have to be a member) and FREE of charge to all students and staff of TCD. It is an opportunity to experience the wealth of activity, enthusiasm, and creativity that our 126 societies have to offer without committing to join up.
The week will kick off with a Re-Freshers Fair in the Atrium
It is not necessary to be a member of a society to attend its Fourth Week event. However, if you like what you see you can sign up on the day and come back later in the year for more.
