The Royal Irish Academy is once again pleased to welcome applications for amounts up to maximum of €2,500 for research on aspects of Ulster History during the period 1500-1800.

Applications are welcome from researchers across all career stages, and applications from researchers active in local learned and historical societies are particularly welcome.
Applicants must demonstrate that their research is likely to constitute a significant and scholarly contribution to historical knowledge on aspects of Ulster History during the period 1500-1800. All details can be found here and queries can be addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org
The R.J. Hunter Research Bursary scheme 2020/2021 opened on 3rd November and closes on 17 December 2020.
