The Tier 1 Primary and Community Care Early Researcher Bursary Scheme is now open for applications, with a deadline of Friday 4th December 2015.

Tier 1 is aimed at those who have limited or no research experience but would like to learn more and gain some research skills.

The scheme provides up to £3,000 per applicant which must be used to provide clinical backfill so the applicant can attend a research-related course. The applicant's employing organisation must use their Continuing Professional Development (CPD) funds to cover the cost of the course.

The scheme is open to any NHS employee in Primary or Community Care and employees of Public Health organisations in Norfolk or Suffolk who can demonstrate the support of their line manager / employer for their application. We aim to fund 2-3 Tier 1 Bursaries in the first year.
