Tier 2 Bursary

Primary and Community Care Early Researcher Bursary Scheme

Tier 2 is open for applications

What is the scheme? The Tier 2 Bursary is aimed at those who have some experience of research or have completed some research training and who are interested developing their literature reviewing and analytical skills.

The Tier 2 Bursary Scheme provides the time and mentoring support to help applicants develop these research skills. Successful applicants will be seconded to the Research Office to search, review and analyse the literature relating to the area of interest. Applicants will use the time to write a briefing document, report or literature review of relevance to patients and the NHS.

Before applying, we recommended that applicants perform a brief literature search to determine the size and scope of the existing literature and whether a recent systematic review exists in the chosen topic area.

Applicants are encouraged to contact the Research Development team who can advise on the suitability of a topic area prior to submission of an application.

What funds are available? Up to £7,000 is available per applicant to cover the costs of backfill so the applicant can be seconded to the Research Office.
