Developing Research Leaders Awards call

Developing Research Leaders Awards call

As part of the NIHR School for Social Care Research’s commitment to developing research capacity in adult social care, we are inviting Stage 1 applications for Developing Research Leaders Awards.

With support from the NIHR Academy, we are seeking high-quality applications from individuals to develop their careers as research leaders in adult social care research in England. Applicants can request funding of up to £50,000.

The Developing Research Leaders Award (DRLA) Scheme aims to address the need to support individuals at a more advanced level in their research careers by providing tailored and targeted support to develop further as the next leaders for adult social care research. This is particularly where individuals would benefit from resources to help them to accelerate their progression.

The deadline for Stage 1 applications is 16.30 on Thursday 3 June 2021. Applicants are asked to submit an Intention to Submit by 16.30 on Thursday 20 May 2021.
