Iseult Honohan Scholarship 2019/20- Now open for applications

The UCD School of Politics and International Relations PhD scholarships are named after a former PhD student and colleague, Dr Iseult Honohan, who retired from teaching in 2015 after over 25 years of service to the School, University and wider academic community. Dr Honohan is warmly remembered by her former colleagues as a strong supporter of younger scholars. Her PhD on Hannah Arendt, supervised by Fergal O’Connor in the (then) Department of Ethics and Politics, was awarded by the National University of Ireland in 1987. Her research in normative political theory focuses on civic republican political thought – notably in her book, Civic Republicanism (Routledge, 2002) – and its application to issues of justice and moral obligations; ethics and public affairs; and citizenship, immigration and diversity – including in her contribution to the development of the GLOBALCIT citizenship observatory.

This scholarship covers full fees and a living stipend of 14,000 euro per year for up to four years. It is open to EU and non-EU applicants.

Awards will be primarily based on the academic track record of the applicants and the academic merits of the proposal, but social relevance and fit with the school will also be taken into account.
