Grant Funding Scheme

Supporting researcher development in Public Engagement

The WHN bursary has been designed to support and develop researcher skills and experience in public engagement in research. The scheme is available to all researchers and staff within the Centre.

The scheme offers up to £2,000 to run a project that could meet some or all of the following:

  • Build on an engagement/involvement project previously piloted
  • Develop a project focused on two-way engagement with your target audience
  • Develop a project which enables patients to feed into a research project
  • Build evidence for inclusion in larger research grant applications for public engagement and involvement

All projects must meet the criteria for this bursary demonstrating a strong understanding of public engagement or patient and public involvement.
