Wellcome ISSF Diversity and Inclusion Funds
The new Wellcome Institutional Strategic Support Fund (ISSF) award supports novel schemes which are important to the College, such as improving gender equality and raising awareness of a variety of issues. There are three subsets in the Diversity and Inclusion Funds:
• Academic Returners
• Carer’s Conference
• Network and Events
Applications for these are accepted year round and we aim to have these assessed within a short time frame. We encourage applications to the following categories:
Academic Returners – supports independent researchers, clinicians and teaching staff to resume their independent research or scholarship activity to continue their career momentum following a period of parental or carers’ leave.
Carers’ Conference – supports individuals with caring responsibilities to attend conferences and other events (e.g. secondments, placements) they would not normally be able to attend without incurring additional caring costs.
For more information as well as to download application forms, please visit the ISSF website. If you have any queries, please get in touch.
