Annual Research-Development Grants Scheme

The Irish Museums Trust (IMT) operates a small grant scheme comprising five grants up to a maximum of €1,000/£850 each, to be awarded twice a year. The grant scheme is operated by the Irish Museums Trust (IMT) in partnership with the Irish Museums Association (IMA).


Applications are being invited for the next round of the Research-Development Grant (max. €1,000/£850).

Window for applications: Wednesday 01 – Friday 31 May 2024.

The deadline for receipt of applications is 17:30, Friday 31 May 2024. 

Announcement of the awards will be made on Monday 17 June 2024.

The grants are aimed at those working in the museum sector in Ireland and students involved in researching a subject, at research master or doctoral level, relevant to the understanding, management or development of museums across the island. Another objective of the scheme is to enhance networking and peer-to-peer exchanges of knowledge and mutual support, nationally or internationally, among those working in Irish museums.
