Eligibility and how to apply

Funding schemes are open to nurses and midwives working in England and often Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland. Please see each scheme’s criteria for more information.

Most of these schemes require considerable groundwork to apply competitively for – so it is well worth reaching out early on to academics in your field you would like to work with, for support and advice on the next best steps and applying.
