Educational Grant

British Association of Day Surgery Educational Grant 2020 'A multidisciplinary opportunity'

BADS Educational Grant 2020 

(Deadline for submissions: Extended to Friday 8th January 2021)

What is it?     

A financial award made to an individual or team to aid a research project or to help fund travel costs as part of a study or practice development. In all cases, the project must be aimed at improving day surgery, either within the UK or abroad. A precondition of the educational grant is that those who receive it will attend the next BADS Day Surgery Conference and present the outcomes of their project so that their experience can be shared.

Who can apply?

Applications are open ONLY to BADS members (an application received from a non-member will not be considered). The award is open to any member of the multidisciplinary team (including but not exclusively doctors, nursing staff and allied health professionals) or a whole team who wish to be considered for financial assistance. More than one award may be granted at the discretion of the Council.

How do I apply?

By submitting a proposal for the work you intend to undertake. This should be presented using the guidelines indicated on the Application Form. The proposal should include ethical committee approval where this is appropriate and a breakdown of expected costs and the total sum applied for (up to a maximum of £1000 but each award to be decided upon by BADS council). 

How will I be judged?

Members of the BADS Council will judge any proposal submitted on the basis of a pre decided set of criteria (as shown on the Application Form). The Council reserves the right not to award a grant.
