To honor his memory, ACIS and Dr. Larkin's friends and family have created the Emmet Larkin Fellowship, an annual research award of $700 to be given to a Ph.D. student conducting work in history or the social sciences on an Irish topic (diaspora included) at a North American institution.
Krause Research Fellowship in Irish Studies
A poet and scholar most known for his extensive work on the life and letters of Irish playwright Sean O'Casey, Professor David Krause (1917-2011) mentored many students as a professor of English at Brown University for more than three decades. In recognition of his renowned record of scholarship and long service to Irish Studies, Dr. Krause's friends and family have taken the lead in establishing an annual fellowship of $700 to be awarded to a Ph.D. student working on topic in Irish Literature (diaspora included) at a North American institution.
