Call for applications – Master’s internships

As part of the NIHR School for Social Care Research’s commitment to developing research capacity in adult social care, we are inviting applications for Internship Awards.

Applicants can request funding of up to £5,000 for student internships to support individuals undertaking a Master’s degree to develop their career in adult social care (ASC) research in England. Awards will be made to support individuals to undertake their dissertation at an NIHR SSCR Core Member university.

With support from the NIHR Academy, the School will consider awards commencing in late May 2020 with a clear end point within 18 months of commencement.

The deadline for application is by 15.00 on Wednesday 13 May 2020.
