Apply For A Research Grant

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'.

The Psoriasis Association launched its first studentship grant in 2007 to support the training of graduate students leading to the presentation of a PhD. Since then, the Psoriasis Association has awarded numerous PhD Studentships and is pleased to continue the commitment to the next generation of psoriasis researchers and offer a new round of PhD studentship grants in 2018. For successful PhD Studentship applicants, a £1,000 travel grant is also available. This is to allow the PhD student to attend national and international conferences, where the student is encouraged to present their work. In addition, a £500 outreach grant is available per successful PhD Studentship to allow the student to organise, carry out, or take part in science outreach events about psoriasis and psoriasis research. 

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 principal 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.

Following the completion of the Priority Setting Partnership (PSP), the Psoriasis Association will be pleased to also offer awards of up to £70,000 for research grant applications which address a PSP top 10 research question.

The 2018 call for PhD Studentship and Cecil King Memorial grant applications is now OPEN. The deadline for applications is Friday 7th December.
