Fellowships Overview


The Trinity Long Room Hub’s Visiting Research Fellowship Programme is pivotal to our mission to connect our research community with the most distinguished scholars in the world and to raise the international profile of Trinity’s Arts and Humanities research. Fellows progress their major research, career changing projects, work with the unique collections of the Trinity College Library, and engage intensely with colleagues and students from cognate areas within the university and in other institutions on collaborative research. They also share their research insights with the public through a range of events.

We offer two types of competitively appointed funded fellowship programmes and also welcome applications for non-stipendiary fellowships:

Short Term Funded Fellowships

We partner with our member Schools and the Library to appoint Visiting Research Fellows for periods from two weeks to three months. Between 2010 and 2017, the Institute hosted 123 Visiting Research Fellows from 24 countries; 103 were funded by the Institute and the remaining 20 had secured alternative sources of external funding - including the Transnational Access fellows funded by the FP7 CENDARI project (Collaborative European Digital Archive Infrastructure), the Marie Curie IRES SPECTRESS programme and the McNally Fellowship (from Ireland Funds Singapore). The funded scheme is a competitively appointed process but nominations are run through our Schools and it is not advertised publicly.

MSCA COFUND Fellowships

From 2017-18 to 2019-20 we will offer a 12 month fellowship programme co-funded by the Horizon 2020 Marie Sklodowska Curie Actions. The first call to this programme for 2017-18 fellowships is now complete and details on the second call can be found here:

Non-Stipendiary Fellowships

The Institute welcomes applications for short term non-stipendiary fellowships of 1 to 3 months from international scholars who have secured funding of their own. The most important requirement is that before applying interested scholars should have secured the support of an academic mentor from one of three nominating areas – a partnering School and/or the Library and/or the convener of one of Trinity’s Arts and Humanities led research themes or emerging themes. This is to ensure that appointed fellows are integrated into the academic community most closely aligned to their own research background.
