Archaeology Research Grants

The Royal Irish Academy is happy to once more open the annual Archaeology Research Grants Scheme in partnership with the National Monuments Service (Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage), and the Historic Environment Division (Department for Communities, NI) which enables this scheme to operate on an all-island basis.

This scheme welcomes applications which focus on an innovative and standalone research question with a standalone research answer into which research might provide an original contribution to archaeological knowledge.

The Archaeology Research Grants scheme 2021 opened on 4 February 2021 closed on 5 April 2021.
