  1. Entry-level Scholarships / Entry-level Scholarships for Midwives

Entry-level Research Scholarships are to provide ‘pump-priming’ funds to enable candidates to be exposed to a research environment, or to obtain pilot data for bids for definitive funding. Applicants will normally be new to the research discipline and would not previously have been involved in substantial or funded research projects. Scholarships may be held in basic science, clinical or translational research and are a single payment up to a maximum of £20,000 to go towards salary and/or research costs. This is open to applicants studying in the UK or Ireland.

The closing date for applications is 1pm Friday 29 September 2017.
