Residential Bursary Programme

Literature Ireland runs an annual programme of residential bursaries for professional translators working on publisher-commissioned translations of works of Irish literature. The purpose of the bursaries is to enable translators to spend a period of time in Ireland working on a translation, meeting with authors, carrying out research in Irish libraries and generally immersing themselves in the cultural, linguistic and artistic environment of contemporary Irish literature.


Please note that all translator bursaries for 2017 have been allocated. Applications for 2018 bursaries will be accepted from 1 October 2017. For further information, please email info[at]
