2018 Charlemont Grants now open: international Postdoc travel grants

The Royal Irish Academy’s Charlemont Grants are now open for applications.

The Royal Irish Academy strongly supports the promotion, sustainability and communication of Irish research and aims to deliver its own vision of championing Irish research on an international scale. The scheme is open to postdoctoral researchers who are not more than seven years past the awarding of their PhDs at the start of the term of the grant period. The scheme allows postdoctoral researchers to apply for up to €2,500 for a clearly defined piece of research, which will have an identifiable outcome on the completion of the project.*

Reasons for applying

The Charlemont Grants are unique in offering young Irish researchers the opportunity to travel internationally, make important connections and further their research networks in any discipline.
Common benefits include:
• successful joint publications in prestigious academic journals
• access to training in technology and infrastructures not available in Ireland
• career development of grantees including internal promotions
• the leverage of connections formed to successfully compete for domestic and international research funding

Submission deadline:
