NUI Grant Scheme for Early Career Academics

NUI is delighted to continue its pilot Grant Scheme to allow Early Career Academics to engage in international conference organisation, participation and networking in NUI institutions, in institutions outside of Ireland or in the NUI building on Merrion Square in Dublin.

Grants are offered under two streams. Applications for all streams are welcomed from all disciplines and interdisciplinary/multi-disciplinary proposals are particularly encouraged. An applicant may apply for either Stream 1 or Stream 2, but not both.

The competition for the NUI Grant Scheme for Early Career Academics is now closed.

In 2019, NUI and the Fulbright Commission awarded the Fulbright-NUI Scholar Award to Dr John Greaney.

Dr Greaney graduated from and now lectures and tutors in UCD and Maynooth University. His work has been featured in Irish Studies Review and Textual Practice, and he is co-editing Irish Modernisms: Gaps, Conjectures Possibilities. As a Fulbright-NUI Scholar at the University of Pennsylvania, he will undertake research for his monograph, The Distance of Irish Modernism, which investigates the paradox through which the Irish modernist novel becomes both a container for national history and a mode of world literature.

Comhaltacht Iardhochtúireachta OÉ sa Léann Éireannach agus Ceilteach

Cuireadh an Chomhaltacht Iardhochtúireachta seo, maoinithe ag Ciste Adam Boyd Simpson agus Eleanor Boyd, ar fáil do chomórtas i measc céimithe OÉ in 2016.

Is é €80,000 an luach a bhí ar an gComhaltacht (€40,000 in aghaidh na bliana ar feadh dhá bhliain).

Is é príomhchuspóir na Comhaltachta seo ná chun spreagadh agus tacaíocht a thabhairt d’iarrthóir iardhochtúireachta ar shárchaighdeán acadúil a dtaighde scolártha a chur chun cinn i réimse an Léinn Éireannaigh agus Cheiltigh. Beifear ag súil gurb é toradh an taighde ná go gcuirfear go mór leis an eolas agus gur fiú é a fhoilsiú agus go gcuirfear leis an gcultúr foghlama sna comh-institiúidí.
