The Wellcome Trust Research Bursary Scheme

The Wellcome Trust Research Bursaries Scheme is for small and medium-scale research projects based on library or archive collections supported by the Wellcome Trust. Projects must focus either on Wellcome Library holdings or on any collection supported by a previous Research Resources grant, but they need not be historically grounded. Applications may also be submitted by conservators, artists, performers, broadcasters, writers, public engagement practitioners and others working in the creative arts. Applications are invited for awards of between £5000 and £25000. Deadlines for the scheme are normally 1 April and 1 October.

Full details of the scheme can be found on the Wellcome Trust Medical Humanities website.
