In addition to the Princess Grace Irish Library's main funding by the Fondation Princesse Grace, THE IRELAND FUND OF MONACO is immensely generous to the Library. In 2001, the IFM created a Bursary for Irish writers and academics to pursue their writing and research projects in the friendly surroundings of the Library.
It consists of a one-month stay in Monaco in the Spring and Autumn.
The laureates to date are Eoin McNamee, Angela Bourke, Molly McCloskey, Fred Johnston, Leontia Flynn, Justin Quinn, John F. Deane, Gerry Smyth, Anne Fitzgerald, Mary O'Donnell, Brian Lynch, Fintan Vallely, Martina Devlin, Gréagóir Ó Dúill, William Wall, James Harpur, Robert O'Byrne, Turtle Bunbury, Polly Devlin, Tom Phelan, Ríonach uí Ógáin and Vandra Costello.
