Irish Research Council for Humanities and Social Sciences (IRCHSS) funds cutting-edge research in the humanities, social sciences, business and law with the objective of creating new knowledge and expertise beneficial to Ireland's economic, social and cultural development.

Universities Ireland promotes collaboration between universities in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. They usually offer a number of bursaries to students undertaking a recognised Master's course (taught or research) in the other Irish jurisdiction.

Funding may be available through research grants from the Higher Education Authority’s Programme for Research in Third Level Institutions (HEA-PRTLI), as well as research programmes funded by the European Commission.
