Early Career Foundation Awards open!

The Glasgow Medical Humanities Network is pleased to announce that applications are now open for its Early Career Foundation Awards. Full details, including application form, can be found at the scheme’s page.

The Foundation Awards (up to £1000) are open to Early Career Researchers (post-doctoral or final year of PhD) anywhere in the UK. There is no postdoctoral ‘cut off’ point, so applicants are eligible if not in permanent academic employment, regardless of when they finished their PhD.

As well as applying for a range of research expenses, applicants may request a personal bursary of up to £600. The optional bursary is targeted to PhDs/ECRs in casual, part-time and/or precarious employment — but every application for the bursary will be considered on individual merit.

The 2021 round deadline is 31 July 2021, with results announced by 31 August 2021. Projects should last no more than twelve weeks and be completed by 31 December 2021.

Please feel free and encouraged to circulate details in your networks.
