Research Grant Application Call Now Open

The Psoriasis Association is pleased to announce that the 2019 call for PhD Studentship and Cecil King Memorial Grant applications is now open.

Information about applying for the PhD Studentship and Cecil King Memorial grants can be found here.

The Psoriasis Association PhD Studentship grant was first launched in 2007 and we are proud to continue our support of early career psoriasis researchers in 2019. The Psoriasis Association is pleased to offer £85,500 over three years for the 2019 PhD Studentship awards. For successful PhD Studentship applicants, a £1,000 travel grant and a £500 outreach grant will also be available during the Studentship. 

Alongside PhD Studentships, a small grant of up to £10,000 is available through the Psoriasis Association from the Cecil King Memorial Foundation. This grant is available for projects where the lead researcher is under 35 years of age, or within the first five consecutive years, at the time of application, of either their first permanent independent academic research post or a named limited-tenured/fixed-term academic research post, obtained in open competition (note that tenure must cover the duration of the award) based in the UK or Ireland.

The Psoriasis Association will consider applications that have clear relevance to its aim ‘to promote and fund research into the causes, nature and care of psoriasis and to publish and disseminate the results of that research’ and contain a rigorous research focus. Applications that also address one of the ‘Psoriasis Top 10’ research priorities will be looked on favourably and, providing the applications are of high scientific quality and good value for money, we expect to fund at least one PhD Studentship that meets this criteria.

The 2019 grant application process opened on Monday 2nd September, and will close on Friday 6th December 2019.
