The Larkin Research Fellowship in Irish Studies is given to annually to a Ph.D. student conducting work in history or the social sciences on an Irish topic. The Krause Research Fellowship in Irish Studies is awarded annually to a Ph.D. student working on a topic in Irish literature. For both prizes, eligible topics include Ireland as well as the Irish global diaspora. Applicants must be doctoral candidates at a North American institution.
