Comhaltacht Iardhochtúireachta OÉ sa Léann Éireannach agus Ceilteach

Cuireadh an Chomhaltacht Iardhochtúireachta seo, maoinithe ag Ciste Adam Boyd Simpson agus Eleanor Boyd, ar fáil do chomórtas i measc céimithe OÉ in 2016.

Is é €80,000 an luach a bhí ar an gComhaltacht (€40,000 in aghaidh na bliana ar feadh dhá bhliain).

Is é príomhchuspóir na Comhaltachta seo ná chun spreagadh agus tacaíocht a thabhairt d’iarrthóir iardhochtúireachta ar shárchaighdeán acadúil a dtaighde scolártha a chur chun cinn i réimse an Léinn Éireannaigh agus Cheiltigh. Beifear ag súil gurb é toradh an taighde ná go gcuirfear go mór leis an eolas agus gur fiú é a fhoilsiú agus go gcuirfear leis an gcultúr foghlama sna comh-institiúidí.

 

NUI Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Irish / Celtic Studies

This Post-Doctoral Fellowship, funded by the Adam Boyd Simpson and the Eleanor Boyd Fund, was offered for competition amongst NUI graduates in 2016.


The value of the Fellowship was €80,000 (€40,000 a year for two years).

The main purpose of this Fellowship is to encourage and support a post-doctoral graduate of proven academic excellence to advance their scholarly research in the area of Irish / Celtic Studies. It is expected that the research undertaken will result in a substantial contribution to knowledge, worthy of publication, and contribute to the learning culture in the constituent institutions.
