Third round - NIHR BRC Education, Training and Career development Fund

The NIHR Southampton  BRC are pleased to announce the Third round of funding from the Education, Training & Career Development Fund. A budget of 15k has been set aside for the year April 2018 – March 2019.  The scheme has a limited budget and awards are therefore competitive.

The purpose is to:

  • Offer funds of up to £500 to enable BRC aligned junior investigators and research staff to access training, education and career development opportunities (This includes both research delivery staff and researchers)
  • Encourage and support BRC aligned  junior investigators to disseminate their research
  • Raise the profile of the achievements of BRC aligned  junior investigators 

Following experiences from the previous round we request that you carefully review the eligibility criteria. In particular we will not fund:

  1. More than £500 per applicant in 2018-19.
  2. We won’t fund if applicants don’t submit all requested paperwork e.g. CV and letter of support from supervisor
  3. Individuals who have alternative access to funds eg. NIHR Southampton BRC Academy members who already have a budget for training as part of their studentship/ fellowship, eligible to apply to the NIHR trainees funds.
