The Keough-Naughton Institute for Irish Studies and Notre Dame International jointly sponsor the Keough-Naughton Library Research Award in Irish Studies for Visiting Scholars. The award provides grant funding to assist scholars who travel to the Notre Dame campus to use the collections of the Hesburgh Libraries for research in all aspects of Irish studies.
The Irish Studies collections of the Hesburgh Libraries, primarily print, include a wide-ranging fiction collection, a strong seventeenth- and eighteenth-century print book collection, and collections on Berkeley, Burke, and Swift. Lists and descriptions may be found in this guide: Irish Studies Resources for Graduate Research.
The award is intended to defray the cost of travel and accommodation for research visits of one to three weeks in duration. The value of the award is normally between $1,500 and $3,000. 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.
