Visiting Research Fellowship Programme

One man speaking to another at a circular table at the Long Room Hub

We partner with our member Schools and the Library to appoint a small number of funded Visiting Research Fellows for short periods. Important information to note about this scheme: 

  • It is aimed at established to mid-career scholars not resident or employed on the island of Ireland, with fluent spoken and written English.
  • Fellowship durations are one to three months. The funding includes flights and accommodation. 
  • The call is not advertised publicly – nominations must come through our partnering Schools, themes and the Library. Interested scholars should seek an academic partner in the relevant partnering area. When the internal call for nominations goes live (the 2024-25 call is open between December and February 2024), an interested scholar should ask their academic partner to circulate the application form for completion. The academic partner then needs to secure their area’s support for the application to be submitted as part of the small number of applications the area can submit in a given year.
  • The short term funded scheme is a competitive selection process. Once all applications are received they are considered by a selection committee and a limited number will be funded.

Non-Stipendiary Fellowships 

The Institute welcomes applications for short-term non-stipendiary fellowships of 1 to 3 months from mid-career/established international scholars (not resident or employed on the island of Ireland) 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 partner within a partnering Trinity Long Room Hub School. This is to ensure that appointed fellows are integrated into the academic community most closely aligned to their own research background.
