Looking for Funding?

Every year the IAPH runs its Bursary Scheme. These bursaries are intended to support the Association’s members in their professional activities and may be used for a range of activities, such as:

  • attendance of conferences outside the island of Ireland
  • publication expenses
  • costs associated with research trips
  • professional development activities/training
  • conference organisation

Two bursaries, valued at €500 each, are be offered annually. The bursary should be used during the calendar year. To be eligible to apply, all you need is to be a paid-up member of the IAPH.
