Academic Clinical Fellowships

This is a pump-priming scheme to support researchers at an early stage in their careers. It's open to NIHR Academic Clinical Fellows and Clinical Lecturers at Barts and the London School of Medicine and Dentistry, and Barts Health NHS Trust.


Applicants can apply for an award of up to £4,000 for consumables only. The scheme doesn’t cover salary, travel or training costs.

The next deadline for applications is Autumn 2019 (exact date TBC). Applicants should upload a signed endorsement document with their application.

An ACF award has all these benefits:

  • carry out proof-of-concept studies or collect pilot data for a larger grant application
  • learn the procedure of grant-writing and grant applications
  • strengthen your CV for future grant and fellowship applications
  • build your confidence as a researcher

Contact our Grants Advisers to find out if this scheme can support you.
