The RBS will see a set number of bursaries awarded to successful applicants subject to an overall maximum of €50,000. For the current round of funding, it is anticipated that seven bursaries of €2,000 would be available for individual projects and nine bursaries of €4,000 would be available for collaborative projects.The RBS places a strong emphasis on research activities that strengthen the links between research, policy and practice, and on collaboration among teachers, and between teachers and other educational researchers. While individual applicants must be practising teachers, collaborative applications are open to all those interested in conducting new educational research. However, at least one of the applicants in a collaborative application must be a practising teacher.

All applications submitted must:
  • involve a practising teacher or teachers in order to meet eligibility criteria and will be required, as part of the application process, to make a declaration confirming that;
  • demonstrate significant capacity to contribute to research, policy and practice in relation to one or more of the six Cosán Learning Areas:
    • Leading Learning
    • Literacy & Numeracy
    • Inclusion
    • Supporting Teachers’ Learning
    • Wellbeing
    • ICT
In considering applications priority will be afforded to:
  • Research which supports the implementation of evidence-informed approaches to classroom practice;
  • Collaborative research applications.
