The aim of the Research Grant/Fellowship is to fund clinical or basic science research of relevance to hand surgery. It is anticipated that this funding source will be used to fund a fellowship for a trainee, but applications from therapists for fellowships under the supervision of a BSSH member and non-fellowship research projects run by BSSH members will be considered equally. Studies to support research to assist a commercial enterprise will not be considered. Maximum funds of £50,000 per year are available.
The closing date for applications is 15 January annually and awards decisions will be made by 31 March. If you require further information or have any queries with regard to these awards please contact the Secretariat.
