Are you looking for modest financial support for benchwork?
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.
1 April and 1 November
