Mission Statement The Irish Museums Trust, founded in 1978, is a non-profit charitable body dedicated to supporting the development and improvement of the Irish museum sector on the island of Ireland.

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 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).

The grants are aimed at those working in the museum sector in Ireland and students involved in researching a subject, at research masters 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.
