The NIHR Global Health Research (GHR) Workshop Fund scheme funds awards of up to £10,000 per individual. It allows NIHR Academy members (PhD and post-doctoral only) based in the NIHR GHR Programmes the opportunity to plan and lead a workshop with a defined output, on a topic that is pertinent to them as an individual and relevant to other participants.
The scheme is designed to enable GHR NIHR Academy Members (PhD and post-doctoral only) to develop the skills they will need to be a successful research leader; bringing individuals together for a common aim, to enhance their exposure to multi-disciplinary working, as well as building networks and providing peer support. It is expected that the NIHR GHR Workshop Fund will contribute to enhancing the GHR Programmes’ outcomes in achieving direct and primary benefit for patients and populations in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs).
The NIHR GHR Workshop Fund is funded by Official Development Assistance (ODA) so an individual applying for this award must be able to demonstrate how the award will directly and primarily benefit patients and the public in countries on the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development’s Development Assistance Committee List of ODA Recipients (OECD DAC List of ODA Recipients).
Further details regarding the GHR Workshop Fund award, including eligibility, application/assessment process and the application periods can be found in the Guidance Notes. We encourage all applicants to consult the most up to date UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office travel advice when planning a GHR Workshop Fund application, as well as contacting the NIHR Academy Office with any eligibility queries.
