Research Grant On-Line Application
Applications are invited for a BOFAS Research Grant from the British Orthopaedic Foot Surgery Society, for grants of up to £5000 towards research into foot and ankle problems within the United Kingdom. Both basic science and clinical research are eligible.
These grants are particularly intended to get a project under way and are normally awarded for stand alone studies where modest funds are required. Typical applications could include:
- Pilot project to inform a full grant application
- Prospective clinical study requiring help with input and analysis of data
- Statistical advice on trial design
- Specialist equipment purchase
Grants will not be offered as part of general funding of a large project. General use equipment such as computers and printers would not normally be funded, neither would technician or researcher time if they are to be co-authors.
The applicants may be from any discipline but must include a full member of BOFAS who will be responsible for the grant funds.
All applications are anonymised and considered, as and when they are submitted.
Where one of the Scientific Committee is also an applicant, the individual is excluded from the meeting during the discussion of their proposal.
You should expect a response within 4 weeks and a final decision within 8 weeks.
The application should be via the website application form. All parts should be completed. If you are attaching a CV then please ensure it is short.
Any queries or questions should be sent to:
The Chair of BOFAS Scientific Committee
