Grants on offer for furthering researching into Cork
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.
