Doctoral Fellowships in Irish Studies at NUI Galway Since its inception in 2000, the Centre for Irish Studies at NUI Galway has established itself as one of the premier locations worldwide for interdisciplinary research and advanced teaching on the cultural, social and political endeavours of Irish people, on the island of Ireland and beyond. More than 20 PhD candidates have graduated from the Centre for Irish Studies since 2006 and many of these graduates have been awarded prestigious post-doctoral research fellowships. A significant number of them are now employed at universities in Ireland and overseas.
The Centre for Irish Studies is now offering a number of fellowships for PhD candidates in Irish Studies who intend to register as fulltime students at NUI Galway in 2020.
