Charlemont Grants

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 Academy’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 Academy and has previously facilitated short international visits from Ireland for the conduct of primary research in any subject area including the development of new research collaborations and networks, access to research equipment and training not available in Ireland.

This year, in light of the Covid-19 travel restrictions the scheme will provide seed funding for the development of international or all island collaboration projects

This 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 2020/2021 opened on 23 September and closed on 4 November 2020
