The Royal Irish Academy’s Charlemont Grants Scheme was established in 2007 (formerly known as the RIA Mobility Grant Scheme). It is a high-impact travel grants scheme aimed at early-career postdoctoral researchers. The scheme, named in honour of the Academy’s first president, and notable Grand Tourist, James Caulfeild, the first Earl of Charlemont (1728-99), facilitates short international visits from Ireland for the conduct of primary research in any subject area.
This highly successful scheme speaks to one of the RIA’s fundamental missions by identifying and encouraging excellence in all areas of Irish scholarship and facilitating research on an international stage.
The Charlemont Grants scheme 2019/2020 opened on 25 October and closed on 4 December 2019.
This year the RIA is thankful to the generosity of its Members for their support which has allowed the Academy to dedicate funding for at least one Charlemont Grant to independent scholars.
