Nowlan Digitisation Grants

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. Kevin B. Nowlan was elected a Member of the Royal Irish Academy in 1977 and served as Vice-President, 1980-1983 and 1985-1989.  Professor Nowlan left a generous bequest to the Academy which has funded The Kevin B. Nowlan Digitisation Grant scheme.

The scheme aims to expand the range of digitised historical sources available through open and free access to researchers. 

The first Nowlan Digitisation Grants scheme will open to applications in the discipline of History on 27 November 2020 and close on 26 January 2021.
