Charlemont Grants awarded 2019/202026 March 2020
The Royal Irish Academy has funded thirty early career researchers under the Charlemont Grants scheme, which enables researchers to undertake short international visits from Ireland for the conduct of primary research in any subject area.
Thanks to additional funding provided by the Department of Education and Skills this year the Academy has been able to increase the number of projects funded to support ECRs in a post-Brexit environment.

The kindness of donations from our Members this year also allowed us to ensure that a number of independent scholars were supported.
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.
