For Practitioners and Researchers in the Museum Sector in Ireland
The Irish Museums Trust (IMT) has introduced a research-development 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 supporting individuals working in the museum sector in Ireland and students at research masters or Doctoral level, involved in researching a subject 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.
