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 £5,000 is available. Either £3,500 (for consumables only) or £5,000 (to cover a stipend to a summer vacation student). Any additional funding sought for the proposed work from other sources should be mentioned in the application.
