The RDS runs a number of schemes as follows:
i) Charlemont Grants, which offer young Irish researchers the opportunity to travel internationally, make important connections and further their research networks in any discipline.
ii) Royal Society International Exchange Cost Share Programme, which is designed to enable international collaboration by providing the marginal costs of research, i.e., travel, subsistence and research expenses. The collaboration should be based on a single project including two teams or individuals: one based in Ireland, and the other in the UK. A relationship between both parties should already be established prior to making an application.
iii) R.J. Hunter Research Bursary Scheme, which promotes writing on the history of plantation and settlement in ulster in the early modern period (c. 1550s - 1750s) including patters of migration from and to Britain and North America. The scheme also promotes cognate areas of research on early modern Ulster, including urban growth, local administration, social structure, religion, print culture, political interaction, trade and commerce and economy.
iv) Eoin O'Mahony Bursary in Irish History, which supports candidates engaged in historical research on subjects of Irish interest. Preference is given to family, history projects, particularly those associates with the "Wild Geese".
