U21 HSG Funding Opportunities 2019

We offer staff and research students a range of funding options for collaborative projects. We strongly encourage our members to take an interdisciplinary approach involving multiple health themes, working in partnership with at least three member universities.

Deadline for applications: 6th May 2019


International Projects Fund

The U21 HSG International Projects Fund is aimed at supporting academic and non-academic represented teams develop a collaborative project with at least three U21 HSG member institutions, across at least two countries. This is designed to be a more flexible fund to enable members to think innovatively with the aim of helping us achieve the network’s overarching goals. These may include for example: enhancing global education, information exchange and sharing of resources.

Up to £10,000 will be awarded annually with the expectation that, over a 12 month period, the project group will deliver specific project outputs and report on these at the Annual Meeting.

Research Development Fund

The U21 HSG Research Development Fund is aimed at supporting interdisciplinary research projects across at least three U21 HSG member universities, across at least two countries.

Up to £10,000 will be awarded annually for a 12-month period with the expectation that this will lead to high-impact publications and applications for further substantial funding.

Student Research Fund

The U21 HSG Student Research Fund is designed to support Masters (Research) and Doctoral Students across the network to develop a research project with at least three U21 HSG member institutions across two countries.

Up to £5,000 will be awarded annually with the expectation that, over a 12-month period, the project group will submit at least one high-impact paper for publication and report on project outputs at the Annual Meeting. This award includes a contribution to fund travel for a representative to attend the Annual Meeting.
