The purpose of the Fellowships is to establish the intellectual and academic value of the holdings.
More than 19,000 items are held in the Historical Archives, covering a period extending from the 14th to the 20th century. The main themes are daily life at the Irish College and the buildings which were owned by the Irish Community, the grant foundations, the religious community etc.
We are looking for an output which would add to our knowledge of the library or archives and to the information which we can put into the public domain.
Priority will be given to research subjects examining a corpus of references instead of one reference in particular. See below for the list of research conducted by previous fellows.
Duration: 4 to 6 weeks between June and September.
Grant: €1000 per month; accommodation and travel covered (subject to certain conditions).
• Summary of your proposed research topic (500-1,000 words) + your preferred dates and duration (4, 5 or 6 weeks)
• Bibliography of the items you plan to consult
• Any additional relevant documentation
