ACIS Logo Larkin Interdisciplinary Fellowship

Recognizing increased interdisciplinary connections in Irish Studies, we are pleased to fund graduate research that may not fit easily into the pre-existing categories of other ACIS fellowships. The Emmet Larkin Interdisciplinary Fellowship aims to encourage interdisciplinary research on topics that intersect with Irish Studies, including but not limited to music; creative writing; folklore; Irish language; social sciences; Women’s, Gender, and Sexualities Studies; disability studies; and other related fields.

This is an annual research award of $1,000 to be given to a Master’s or Ph.D. student conducting work on an Irish topic (diaspora included) at a North American institution.

The Emmet Larkin Interdisciplinary Fellowship is funded by the Georges Lurcy Charitable and Educational Trust.
