Overseas and Irish scholars, interested in pursuing research in Maynooth University’s Arts and Humanities Institute, are invited to apply to the Institute’s Visiting Fellows Schemes.

We run two visiting fellowship schemes. The first, funded by the Institute, is for research in any branch of the arts and humanities. For successful applicants, the Institute offers an office space, library access and general administrative support. Applicants require a sponsoring colleague in the Maynooth University Faculty of Arts.  Fellows spend at least a week on campus. Funding, to a maximum of €2000, is for travel to and from Maynooth and accommodation in Maynooth. Applicants must have an academic host in Maynooth University who will provide a letter of support. To apply please complete the visiting fellow application form.
