PhD Scholarship – Loyola Institute

PhD Scholarship in Theology and the early Irish Church, Loyola Institute, Trinity College Dublin

The Loyola Institute is pleased to announce a doctoral scholarship in theology and the early Irish Church. Proposals which focus on the Irish influence in Europe, its migration through monastic networks in continental Europe, and the influence of the gospel of St John on the Irish church and diaspora will be particularly welcome.

The scholarship will cover academic fees and offer a stipend of €13,000 per annum for four years. Some funding will also be available to help with travel for research, or to conferences. The successful applicant will have a strong research background and demonstrated track record of excellence in theology and/or medieval history. If the student is lacking expertise in either of these areas, they will be asked to complete appropriate modules from the M.Phil. in Christian Theology, or from the M.Phil. in Medieval Studies. This scholarship is offered thanks to generous philanthropic funding.

Please contact Dr Fáinche Ryan with any queries, or visit the website for further details.

Closing date for applications: 31 December 2021.
