Research bursary award

We support research for the benefit of service users.

The research bursary provides up to £5000 to support small research projects led by a full or associate member of the CMHP. Projects which contribute to enhancing the quality of care with psychiatric medicines, through improving pharmaceutical services or ensuring safe and effective use of medicines, will be considered. The judging panel may decide to award the total amount to one project or to one or more smaller projects.

The 2018 call for applications closed on 30 June 2018. For reference, the process for submissions is outlined below.
