Moriarty Award in Irish Literature

This year marks the eighth annual Timothy F. Moriarty Award in Irish Literature. This award, the result of a generous donation to the English Department by Janet Moriarty, is intended to enhance the University’s Irish Literature programs and activities. To be eligible for the award, one must be a graduate student in the English Department who can demonstrate both academic achievement and a focal interest in Irish literature. The award is designed to support the professional development of English graduate students involved in Irish literature by supplementing expenses related to travel, seminars, conferences, and/or research. This year, the award is anticipated to be $700.

Eligible applicants should submit an application to the Department’s main office, Austin 208, no later than noon on Friday, March 11.
