Up to £3,000 per project.
Three small projects, annually.
Who can enter
The award is open to any appropriate and qualified researcher (of any grade) who is a member or affiliate of the College. Trainee psychiatrists are particularly encouraged to apply.
The funded projects must be in line with our strategic aims,
must be of clear value to the NHS and/or wider health and social care services, and must be carried out in the UK.
Direct patient-related research will not be funded, as the Faculty believes that there are already well-established funding schemes with systems of oversight available for this.
Applications will therefore be welcomed in areas such as teaching, training, service development, public education or other videos, recruitment and retention of old age psychiatrists, operational work etc.
No award will be made if no application reaches the required standard.
Up to £3,000 will be given in two or three parts to the successful applicant over the course of the project and will be dependent on evidence that the project is progressing.
Payment schedules will depend on the nature of the project and will be discussed with the successful applicant before the start of the project. We would prefer if there was a supporting organisation to whom we can make payments – please let
us know if this is a problem.
- Projects should be completed within 15 months (January 2019-March 2020)
- Successful applicants will be required to send updates on their progress three times a year and submit a detailed report to our Executive at the completion of the project. The report should detail how successfully the project aims have been met and
any continued benefit achieved
- You will be invited to present your projects at our annual meeting following completion of the project
- You will be expected to submit an article for publication in our newsletter on
completion of the project.
Please email submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org by 13 November 2018 using this application form.
