Hamilton Scholar 2014/2015 Argia Rubeo


The first Hamilton Ph.D. Scholarship was awarded in October 2014, with seed funding TCD’s Faculty of Engineering, Mathematics and Science, and the generous support of Trinity’s US alumni.

The scholarship was awarded to Argia Rubeo from Italy after an international competition.

“I am deeply honoured to have received the Hamilton Scholar Award as it has allowed me to continue studying Physics, which is my passion, and experience doing research in a stimulating environment at Trinity under the brilliant supervision of Professor S.Sint. Not only does this opportunity mean a lot to me personally, but also, at a wider level, I think it is of fundamental importance to support students in order to make developments in research”. – Argia Rubeo
