Funding Opportunities


Research in London

Notre Dame International and departments across the University offer funding opportunities for international research that can be used toward work at the London Global Gateway. 

Global Gateway Faculty Research Award

The Global Gateway Faculty Research Awards provide annual funding up to $50,000 USD to support faculty research and fellowships. The grants are open to full-time, regular faculty from all Colleges, Schools, and fields of discipline. The purpose of the grant is to support internationally significant faculty research projects and/or collaborations with locally-based research academies, universities, or research groups. These projects showcase the very best of Notre Dame scholarship involving multiple participants and partnerships, and demonstrate high international visibility. At the London Global Gateway, we have hosted a number of these projects since their introduction in 2016, with Notre Dame faculty collaborating with researchers from UK university institutions such as London School of Economics, Durham University and Kings College London.

Mellon 5+1 Fellowships

The London Global Gateway offers the opportunity to Notre Dame graduate students, who complete their doctoral work within five years, to apply for a year-long postdoctoral fellowship. Successful applicants will work on a research project, either by themselves or in collaboration with another UK institution, and teach a course at the Gateway. They are invited to contribute to the intellectual life of the Gateway by participating in seminars, lectures, and activities and sharing their own research with the local academic community through organizing an academic event at the Gateway.

Research at Notre Dame

Notre Dame International and the Keough-Naughton Institute for Irish Studies are delighted to offer a research award for research in Irish studies.  

Keough-Naughton Library Research Award in Irish Studies

The award provides grant funding for scholars to use the collections of the Hesburgh Libraries for research in Irish studies. The awards are intended to defray the cost of travel and accommodation for research visits of one to three weeks in duration. The value of these awards is from $1,500 to $4,000. In this initial year, the selection committee anticipates granting two awards. Awardees may be established scholars, graduate students or postdoctoral scholars. Applications from international locations are encouraged. An important consideration will be the relevance of the Hesburgh Library collections to the proposed research project.
