Keough-Naughton Library Research Award in Irish Studies
The Keough-Naughton Institute for Irish Studies and Notre Dame International are delighted to offer the Keough-Naughton Library Research Award in Irish Studies.
The award provides grant funding for scholars to use the collections of the Hesburgh Libraries for research in Irish studies. The awards are intended to defray the cost of travel and accommodation for research visits of one to three weeks in duration. The value of these awards is from $1,500 to $4,000. In this initial year, the selection committee anticipates granting two awards. Awardees may be established scholars, graduate students or postdoctoral scholars. Applications from international locations are encouraged. An important consideration will be the relevance of the Hesburgh Library collections to the proposed research project.
