Endocrine Nurse Grant Application
  • Applications submitted by a member based at a recognised higher education research institute and/or medical institution will be considered.
  • The Society for Endocrinology is a small charity, which is able to support the work of a limited number of members by providing grants to support the direct costs of research/audit projects. Acceptance of this grant, if awarded, will imply that the institution is prepared to meet the indirect overhead costs from its own sources of funding.
  • Each eligible member may receive one Endocrine Nurse Grant during their career.
  • The Society requires two written reports from the applicant no later than 12 months after receipt of the grant, unless otherwise agreed by the Society for Endocrinology. One academic report (max 1000 words) should demonstrate how the grant benefited the applicant and the report should also include details of any publications resulting from the grant or papers submitted. We also require a second, short, lay summary article (100-200 words) for publicity and/or publication in The Endocrinologist or on the Society’s website. This should focus on how the award has improved or changed the successful applicant’s career or has enhanced nursing/clinical practice.
