CHAS Research Grants Awarded

From 2012, the Society has awarded two annual research grants, one each in the area of history and archaeology, thus reflecting the interests of the Society. Applications are invited for funds to support small projects involving archaeological or historical research, which are undertaken over one year.
Individual grant applications up to a maximum award of €1,000 will be considered in each category.
Individuals and groups are encouraged to apply, including local historians and archaeologists, postgraduate research students, as well as local societies and schools in Co. Cork. More information …
