NEH Fellows

With the support of a National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Challenge Grant, the Institute holds an annual faculty fellow competition. For over 20 years, the Keough-Naughton Institute National Endowment for the Humanities Fellowship has enabled an outstanding scholar to continue his or her research while in residence at the Institute. The Fellowship is open to scholars in any area of Irish Studies and offers a stipend of $55,000.

The NEH Fellow participates in the Institute's weekly Speakers and Public Talks Series and presents a paper on her or his research during the year. Apart from the seminar, the Fellow's only obligation is to pursue her or his research. The Fellow is provided an office in the Keough-Naughton Institute and is fully integrated into the Institute's life, with full library privileges and access to the Institute's research tools.

For more information and current application deadlines, please contact Beth Bland ( in the Keough-Naughton Institute office.
