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 1 October. If you require further information or have any queries with regard to these awards please contact the Secretariat.
