Starter Grants for Clinical Lecturers

The Starter Grants for Clinical Lecturers Scheme is an established programme run by the Academy of Medical Sciences (AMS) in collaboration with the Wellcome Trust, the British Heart Foundation, the Medical Research Council and other funders.

We contribute funds to grants that are relevant to the cardiovascular system.

The Scheme provides modest starter funds to help research active Clinical Lecturers gather preliminary data, thereby increasing their competitiveness on application for longer-term fellowships and funding.

The maximum grant available is £30,000 which can be spread over two years to contribute towards research costs such as consumables and equipment but not salary. There are two deadlines per year and applications must be submitted to the AMS, not us.

Further details and application forms can be obtained from the AMS website.
