Leave a comment

Less than a month to apply for these two Wellcome Trust awards:

People Awards

The Wellcome Trust invites applications for its people awards. These support projects that are innovative and creative and engage the public with biomedical science or the history of medicine.

Funding is available for small-to-medium sized one-off projects that pilot new ideas with the aim to scale up or become sustainable following the grant, or part-funding for larger projects.

Each award is worth up to £30,000.

The deadline for applications is 20 November 2015 (17.00).

Pathfinder Awards

The Wellcome Trust invites applications for its pathfinder awards. These support innovative early-stage applied R&D projects in areas of unmet medical need.

Awards are usually capped at £100,000 each over a maximum period of 18 months. Awards worth up to £350,000 may be considered in exceptional cases.

The deadline for applications is 23 November 2015.
