Newman Fellowship

Since 1989, leading Irish and multinational corporations, semi-state bodies, voluntary organisations and individuals have supported high-calibre, post-doctoral research across the humanities and sciences through the UCD Newman Fellowship Programme.

Each fellowship offers financial support for a period of two years, allowing the fellow the freedom to pursue their particular area of research. Working alongside their academic mentors, the fellows contribute greatly to the academic research agenda of their particular discipline and to university life in general.


UCD benefits from every gift, no matter the size, that can help to support its future success. Attracting bright minds and improving access to education is a long-term investment in the sustainability of UCD as is the advancement of expertise in areas such as business, biotechnology, energy and clinical research.
