Building on the popularity of the previous Research Bursary Schemes, and reflecting evolving thinking on research, teaching and learning, the Teaching Council announced a Research Support Framework on 11 March 2017. In 2018, this framework was renamed the John Coolahan Research Support Framework, to mark the immense contribution of Professor John Coolahan to the field of education at home and abroad. The framework has been designed to support teachers’ ongoing professional learning through their engagement in and with research, and the sum of €100,000 is being made available for the framework in the current year.
Applications for support under this framework will be accepted until 12 p.m. on 5 June 2018. Late applications will not be considered.
The application form and additional information on the John Coolahan Research Support Framework are available on the pages linked below:
