Alzheimer's - Alzheimer's Research UK grants 2014 (£ 100,000)
The Alzheimer’s Research UK (ARUK) invites applications for different grant schemes. ARUK is the UK’s leading dementia research charity specialising in finding preventions, causes, treatments and a cure for dementia. ARUK has a large number of different grant schemes through which researchers can apply for funding. Grants are between £ 10,000 and £ 100,000.
Researchers can apply for:
• Pilot Project: up to £ 50,000. This can cover staff members, equipment, animals, running costs, or any combinations of these;
• Clinical Research Fellowship: up to three years and provide salary (SpR, registrar level, or on equivalent university scales) and a contribution towards research/travel costs. These costs are normally for up to £10,000 per annum but ARUK will consider requests for up to £ 15,000 per annum if there is sufficient justification with inherently costly research (eg imaging, animal work);
• Emergency Support: up to £ 30,000 for one year;
• PhD Scholarship: a stipend of £ 15,000 per annum (£ 16,000 in London), PhD tuition fees at the Home/EU rate and research/travel costs These costs are normally for up to £ 10,000 per annum but ARUK will consider requests for up to £ 15,000 per annum if there is sufficient justification with inherently costly research (eg imaging, animal work);
• Equipment: between £ 10,000 and £ 100,000 for scientific equipment, flexibly defined. Joint funding applications for even larger pieces are accepted;
• Extension: maximum of £ 100,000 for up to one year, can be applied for by current ARUK Major Project/Programme grant holders;
• Network Cooperation: up to £ 100,000 for projects that will promote cooperation and collaboration between two or more ARUK Network Centres;
• Sabbatical/Secondment: enable established researchers to enrich their research programmes and develop collaborations. The award is worth a maximum of £ 50,000 for up to one year;
• Preparatory Clinical Research Fellowship: designed for clinicians who are planning a career in academic medicine. The Fellowships last one year during which the Fellows are expected to acquire the research skills and experience to apply for full Clinical Research Fellowships. The fellowships are to £ 10,000 per annum but ARUK will consider requests for up to £ 15,000 per annum if there is sufficient justification with inherently costly research.
