Eric Reid Fund for Methodology


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:

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


How much is available?


Up to £4,000 is available, this can be split between a student and consumables. Any additional funding sought for the proposed work from other sources should be mentioned in the application.


Closing Date


20 March 2019
