Submissions for the 2021 Anna Parnell Travel Grant and MacCurtain/Cullen Essay Prize are now being accepted.
The Anna Parnell Travel grant was established in 2011 to promote research among early stage scholars in Irishwomen’s and Gender History. Due to limitations placed on travel during 2021 due to Covid-19, it has been decided to award three smaller grants this year. Grants of up to €170 will be available. These can be used to cover the costs of acquiring scanned/digitised copies of archival material or other online research costs as an alternative to travel costs
The MacCurtain/Cullen Prize in Irishwomen’s History is awarded annually in recognition of the outstanding contribution to Irish women’s history by Margaret MacCurtain and Mary Cullen. The prize is offered for the best original essay in the field of Irish women’s or gender history by a current or recent BA or MA/MPhil student.
