Archaeology Research Grants
The Academy has a long association with the funding of archaeological excavation and field research in Ireland. Since 1970 the RIA Standing Committee for Archaeology (previously the Academy Committee for Archaeology) has administered an annual fund provided by the National Monuments Service (Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht). The fund has financed more than 90 excavations in Ireland, thus enabling scholars to make a substantial contribution to our knowledge of the past. This is the only fund in Ireland supporting independent research excavation.
How To Apply
Applicants are required to submit a detailed proposal for their research project via an online submission to include:
- The aims and scope of the project
- The probable contribution to knowledge
- Publication prospects
Please note that the maximum that may be awarded to an individual application is €2,000.00.
