Only in exceptional circumstances will Fellowships be awarded to researchers normally resident in Ireland.

Fellows will receive office space and office facilities from An Foras Feasa in the Iontas Building, a state-of-the-art humanities research institute, along with full library access and computer facilities.

Fellows will be asked to provide one seminar or a workshop to postgraduate students in the Researcher’s field of interest, as well as a guest lecture to the University community. A limited number of travel stipends of €500 will be available; preference will be given to applicants with limited institutional funding.
