External Funding
Postgraduate students are strongly encouraged to actively search for and apply for funding from any sources they can find; it is a normal part of the postgraduate student profile to become an expert on finding and obtaining funding. This is increasingly important for Irish postgraduate students in anthropology as local sources of funding are reduced. Below are a few examples of external funding sources, but students should conduct their own searches to find funding sources appropriate to their own particular research interests.

Research Professional International Funding Database

Registered students are allowed to search for funding using the Research Professional International Funding Database (available only while on Maynooth University campus). Follow the link for more information.
