Wellcome Trust: Research awards for health professionals

Deadline for applications: 7th January 2020

This scheme offers practising health professionals the opportunity to carry out humanities or social science research, in any area of health.

You can apply for a Research Fellowship if you’re a practising health professional with some research experience.

The research you propose should aim to improve understanding of health and disease using humanities or social science methods.

Examples of areas we’ll consider include, but are not limited to:

  • how social, environmental and political structures determine health
  • how governments, communities and individuals respond to disease and pursue wellbeing
  • the cultural meanings and significance of sickness and health
  • the challenges of modern biomedicine.
