Annually £40K is made available to fund a number of projects over the following levels of funding:
Funding to undertake research modules and a small-scale project (supported by a research organisation, for example, a Higher Education Institute, Primary Care Research Network or Research Design Service).
Funding to upgrade a Diploma in Clinical/Community Pharmacy to an MSc, which usually involves undertaking a further two modules (one on research methods) and undertaking a project.
Funding to undertake a non-pharmacy MSc.
To apply for a Research Training Bursary please download the Research Training Bursary application form and read the Research Training Bursary Guidance document for further information on completing the application form.
These schemes, previously operated by the Pharmacy Practice Research Trust, have been supporting pharmacists for a number of years to gain a number of different skills and educational qualifications.
Shortlisted applicants for Level 3 Bursaries will be invited to interview to discuss their application, which will include a presentation from the lead applicant, followed by questions from a Review Panel.
