Grants on of­fer for fur­ther­ing re­search­ing into Cork

Irish Examiner - County - - News -

Cork His­tor­i­cal and Ar­chae­o­log­i­cal So­ci­ety (CHAS) is of­fer­ing grants to en­cour­age re­search into the his­tory and her­itage of Cork city and county. Founded in 1891, it runs a yearly re­search grant scheme with up to €1,000 on of­fer.

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. The first cat­e­gory, ar­chae­o­log­i­cal within the city or county re­lates to projects set out to record or an­a­lyse ar­chae­o­log­i­cal mon­u­ments, sites or land­scapes, to in­clude gen­eral area sur­veys as well as spe­cial­ist stud­ies in­volv­ing field-walk­ing, mon­u­ment sur­vey, ar­chi­tec­tural record­ing, geo­phys­i­cal sur­vey etc.

How­ever, it will not pro­vide grants for ar­chae­o­log­i­cal ex­ca­va­tion. Grants it pro­vides for his­tory in­clude spe­cial­ist stud­ies con­nected to his­tor­i­cal re­search, such as buy­ing pho­to­graphs, dig­i­tal record­ing, folk­lore record­ing etc.

CHAS says fund­ing sup­port for small pub­li­ca­tion ini­tia­tives will be con­sid­ered.
