First Nowlan Digitisation Grants awarded23 March 2021
Kevin B. Nowlan (1921-2013) was a Dublin-born scholar who taught history at University College Dublin, 1948-1986. He was a founding member of many cultural associations, particularly those focused on architectural preservation. Professor Nowlan left a generous bequest to the Academy which has funded The Kevin B. Nowlan Digitisation Grant scheme.
In this, its first year the scheme focused on the digitisation of resources for Irish History. The scheme aims to expand the range of digitised searchable historical sources available through open and free access to researchers.
Four projects were funded this year. For full details of the projects see here.
