Praeger Grants in Natural History
The Praeger Grants in Natural History were set up in honour of Robert Lloyd Praeger, “Ireland’s greatest naturalist”, onetime President of the RIA and instigator of the of original Clare Island Survey, to encourage the promotion of field study of Ireland’s geology, flora and fauna.
Since 1958, the RIA, through its Praeger Committee, has used the income of this fund to disburse over 360 grants to natural historians, for small fieldwork projects throughout the island of Ireland.
This year the RIA is particuarly thankful for a bequest from the estate of the late Robert Desmond Meikle which will enable the funding of several additional projects.
