The Irish Research Council manages a suite of inter-linked research schemes, funding scholars at various career stages, from postgraduate study to senior research project-based awards. For early stage researchers, schemes include the Government of Ireland Postgraduate Scholarship Scheme, the Enterprise Partnership Scheme (postgraduate and postdoctoral), the Employment Based Programme, and the Government of Ireland Postdoctoral Fellowship Scheme. The Research Project Grants Scheme allows researchers and research teams to expand their activities into new research areas by way of stimulus project grants and knowledge transfer initiatives.
