ASiT Surgical Training Research Grants

APPLICATIONS NOW OPEN

Deadline: 23:59 GMT Monday, 28th February 2022

 

ASiT is pleased to relaunch its Surgical Training Research Grants which were on hold in 2020/2021.

Background:

ASiT is delighted to offer its members the opportunity to apply for grants to support research projects that aim to improve surgical training.

Each bursary is worth up to £500 (3 bursaries will be awarded).

Eligibility:

  • ASiT member at the time of application
  • All career grades will be considered
  • All applications will be considered as long as they are submitted before the project is started
  • The bursary will go towards covering any expenses relevant to the research project

To apply:

Please email info@asit.org with the subject "ASiT Travelling Bursary" and the following attached:

  • A detailed research proposal (5 pages max. - please include your ASiT membership number) detailing:
     
    • how the project will benefit surgical training
    • a breakdown of anticipated costs (include any funding already obtained/applied for) and how you intend to use the ASiT grant funding if successful
  • Letter of support from your research supervisor
  • Summary of your CV (2 pages max.)

Applications will be scored according to merit and successful applicants notified shortly after the deadline and sent instructions on how to claim the bursary amount.

All claims will be reimbursed retrospectively once receipts for expenses are provided.

Please note: If ethical or audit approval and/or University/Trust sponsorship is required for the project, your application can still be submitted prior to the approvals being in place. However, receipt of the grant will be subject to those approvals where relevant. Bursary recipients are also expected to write a report for the ASiT Yearbook (the ASiT Yearbook Editor will be in contact to arrange this if feasible) and may be invited to share their experience in the ASiT Annual Conference prizes and bursaries session.
