Eric Reid Fund for Methodology

 

Are you looking for modest financial support for benchwork?

 
Background

The Fund was endowed by a Trust (Guildford Academic Associates) co-founded by Dr Eric Reid, an Emeritus Member. The emphasis is on methodology, with a preference for cellular or bioanalytical work. Consideration will be given only to applications that are carefully compiled and scientifically convincing.

 

 

Examples of awards:

 

  • Feasibility studies by new staff before they apply to a major award-granting body
  • Developing a new technique
  • Checking the application of a known technique in new circumstances

 

How much is available?

 

Up to £1,250 or, if requesting vacation help, £2,000 (£1250 project costs plus £750 vacation help) is available. Any additional funding sought for the proposed work from other sources should be mentioned in the application.

 

Closing Dates

 

1 April and 1 November
