Small grants

Please click tabs above to view available funding streams.

Please subscribe to our email distribution list to receive announcements of forthcoming workshops and calls.  Email research.grants@uhbw.nhs.uk to subscribe.

Calls for joint UHBW Research Capability Funding (RCF) and Bristol and Weston Hospitals Charity (BWHC) grants are usually held twice a year, in spring and autumn. These awards are for up to £25,000.

The aim of the small grants scheme is to pump-prime larger grants especially to NIHR that will ultimately benefit UHBW patients, staff and the wider NHS. For more details of funding priorities and eligible costs please refer to the guidance document.

Applications are welcomed from any medical or non-medical UHBW employee or university (Bristol or West of England) academic holding an honorary contract with UHBW.

Decisions on which is the most appropriate source of funding for a specific project will be made by the Committee, once a decision to fund has been made.

Occasionally we make awards to UHBW staff for research sessions only, to allow time to write an NIHR grant application outside of the main small grant calls (please talk to Elinor Griffiths in the first instance, email: research.grants@uhbw.nhs.uk)

For any queries on either of these funding streams please contact the R&D Grants Manager, Dr Elinor Griffiths, on 0117 34 29883 or via   research.grants@uhbw.nhs.uk.

Closing dates are on 15 OCTOBER and 30 APRIL each year.
