The Royal Irish Academy's grant schemes for ‘Archaeology Research Excavations' and ‘Directed Research for World Heritage Sites', funded by the National Monuments Service are now open, and will close on 26th November.
Archaeology Research Excavations grants:
The RIA is pleased to announce that once again it invites applications for Archaeological Research Excavations. This is the only fund in Ireland which supports independent research excavations, and welcomes applications for new excavations, continuing excavations and post excavation work. The scheme will be competitive, and the average grant awarded has previously been in the region of €5,000 - €10,000. €64,850 is available for this grant this year.
