The Secretary-General of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade,Niall Burgess and Chargé d’affaires of the U.S. Embassy in Ireland, Mr Reece Smyth, are pleased to announce 36 Fulbright Irish Awardees for 2019-2020. Recipients were presented with Awards at a ceremony in Dublin Castle.
One of the recipients is Ms Cecily Ní Loinsigh. Cecily is from the Gaeltacht village of Béal Átha’n Ghaorthaidh in County Cork. She graduated from St Angela’s College, Sligo with an honours degree in Gaeilge and Home Economics. Since then she has taught in many different second level educational settings. Cecily is currently studying an Advanced Diploma in Personal, Life and Executive Coaching in Kingstown College, Dublin. As a Fulbright Irish FLTA she will further her studies and teach Gaeilge in the University of Montana.
Academics, professionals and students from 13 HEIs and organisations in Ireland will go to 30 leading U.S. institutions to study and collaborate with experts in their fields. This year’s Fulbright recipients are from disciplines spanning technology, science, language, medicine and the arts. The Fulbright Awards celebrate diversity across topics, geography and backgrounds. Increased funding from both the Irish and U.S. Governments has allowed the Fulbright Commission in Ireland to support a wider range and number of exciting study and research awardees than ever before. 

The first ever Fulbright-TechImpact Cybersecurity Scholar to Georgetown University, John Sheppard, a lecturer in cybersecurity and digital forensics at Waterford Institute Technology, will go to the U.S. to conduct research into wearable technologies and associated ethical implications. Conor Quinn, a Senior Cyber Security Consultant with Deloitte Ireland, will be the first Fulbright-TechImpact Cybersecurity Scholar to Boston College where he will join the Cybersecurity Policy and Governance Master’s program and examine new methods to implement cyber security strategies.
As a Fulbright-Geological Survey Ireland Scholar to Arizona State University and the University of Colorado Boulder, Dr Brenda McNally from Trinity College Dublin, will explore how socio-ecological imaginaries can be used to reinvigorate public engagement with climate and energy policy. As a Fulbright Scholar to the Falvey Memorial Library at Villanova University, Dr Mary Louise O’Donnell will investigate the significance of the Irish harp as a political and cultural emblem of identification among Irish emigrants in the United States from 1780 to 1930.  These are just a few examples of the scope of 2019-2020 Fulbright Awardees.

The next round of applications for Fulbright Irish Awards will open on 28th August 2019, interested candidates should visit www.fulbright.ie for more information.
