The Royal Irish Academy’s Charlemont Grants Scheme was established in 2007 (formerly known as the RIA Mobility Grant Scheme). This scheme is an international research scheme awarded to outstanding early career researchers in the humanities, social sciences and sciences.
Named in honour of the RIA’s first President and notable proponent of the Grand Tour, James Caulfeild, 1st Earl of Charlemont (1728-99), this scheme is funded directly by the RIA to facilitate short international visits from Ireland for the conduct of primary research in any subject area including the development of new research collaborations and networks and access to research equipment and training not available in Ireland.
This highly successful scheme speaks to one of the RIA’s fundamental missions to identify and encourage excellence in research and scholarship, and to support the development of international links and collaborations by early career researchers.
Applications for up to €2,500 are invited. Applicants are asked to read the guidelines for applicants carefully before submitting an application.
The Charlemont Grants scheme 2023/2024 opens on 14 September and closes on 27 October 2023.
