Newman Fellowship

Since 1989, leading Irish and multinational corporations, semi-state bodies, voluntary organisations and individuals have supported high-calibre postdoctoral 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 the enrichment of university life in general.


Every gift to UCD, no matter the size, makes a difference. By enabling us to improve access to education and attract the brightest and best students and faculty, your support is an investment in UCD’s sustainability and success. Your generosity drives the advancement of expertise across the academic disciplines, from the humanities and social sciences to business, biotechnology and clinical research.
