Starter grants for clinical lecturers

Published on 14 February 2017

Applications are open for the Academy of Medical Sciences starter grants for clinical lecturers scheme with a deadline of 5pm, Wednesday 8 March 2017. Arthritis Research UK is pleased to support these awards as a partner funder. 

The grants provide modest ‘starter’ funds of up to £30,000 to enable research active Clinical Lecturers to pursue their research work. Clinical Lecturer posts provide a salary but often do not come with the funding to support the costs of the research. This scheme was designed to help bridge this gap by providing Clinical Lecturers with access to modest research funds for up to two years. It gives them experience of preparing a research grant application and helps them establish their research portfolios by providing funding for research consumables.

These grants are administered by the Academy of Medical Sciences, more information and details on how to apply can be found on their website.

If you have any questions about the application, please contact the Academy's grants team on 020 3141 3238, or
