What we offer

Scheme A: Pump-priming award 

This scheme is for applicants who have never received any salary support for research, and who wish to collect preliminary data to support an application for a full 3-year fellowship from a major funder.

We will pay PhD or MD fees, salary and a £7,000 consumables allowance to successful applicants in the first year. You must apply for external fellowships during this period. If you are unsuccessful in securing external funding, the Charity will pay fees, salary and a £7,000 consumables allowance for your second year.

Your chief supervisor must be based at Barts Health NHS Trust, or Barts and the London School of Medicine and Dentistry. You do not need to be an employee of these organisations when you apply but you must be based at one or other when you begin your fellowship.

Scheme B: PhD completion award

This scheme is for applicants who have received up to 2 years of funding for a PhD or MD through a nationally competitive award, and provides 1 year of funding to complete your PhD.

Your chief supervisor must be based at Barts Health NHS Trust, or Barts and the London School of Medicine and Dentistry. You do not need to be an employee of these organisations when you apply but you must be based at one or other when you begin your fellowship.
