2016 Prostate Cancer UK Travelling Prize Fellowships
This call is due to launch end of September
Building on the success of last year, we will shortly be launching the second round of our Travelling Prize Fellowships.
Our Travelling Prize Fellowships provide a unique opportunity for the most promising prostate cancer researchers to make an early start in developing their independent research careers, working in the best research environments in the UK and overseas, and holding substantial funding as a principal investigator.
Our aim is for these Fellowships to support the most outstanding researchers to begin to develop their own research programme, setting them up to be competitive for fellowships at more senior levels, accelerating their career trajectories, and ultimately ensuring that they make the biggest difference for men affected by prostate cancer as quickly as possible.
A Prize Fellowship offers funding for up to 4 years and must include a period of at least 6 months outside of the Fellows' host institution (either elsewhere in the UK, or abroad).Awards can be for up to £250K if solely based in the UK, or a total of £300K if the Fellowship includes a placement at one or more institutions outside the UK.
The guidance notes and eligibility criteria for this call will be available once this scheme has launched.
