Members of the Society of Radiographers can apply for College of Radiographers supported grants.

A doctoral fellowship grant funded by the College of Radiographers is available for Society members wishing to undertake doctoral level research.

There are two fellowship grants of up to £25,000 for candidates in the following research topics:

· Accuracy and safety

· Technological innovations

· Public and patient experience

· Service and workforce transformation

· Education and training

This exciting opportunity to undertake paid doctoral research will not only have a direct benefit for patients and their families, but will also result in a published article in the College’s peer-reviewed journal Radiography, and a public address at one of the CoR’s conferences.

To apply for the fellowship, applicants must be full members of the SoR and be registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) or appropriate voluntary register. Applicants should also be in receipt of a full or conditional offer for doctoral studies at a UK university within one of the four research areas mentioned above and provide at least one submission to Radiography. 

In addition, applicants must provide evidence of support from their employer if remaining in part-time employment, because research will require time out from normal work duties.

Please note: Unfortunately, we are unable to fund applicants who have previously received Doctoral Fellowship funding.

The deadline for submissions is 5pm on 5 April 2021.

Overseas Conference Grant

If you would like to attend a professional conference outside of the UK to present your work, you can apply for an Overseas Conference Grant to help fund your trip to receive funding of up to £1,000.

Funding will support members, or a small team of members, to travel overseas and present the findings of their research as an oral paper. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic we will also consider applications to attend virtual events.

To apply for the grant, applicants should submit a 1,500-word proposal outlining their work, how their paper is expected to impact on patient care and the expected outcomes from the work.

The deadline for applications is Friday 30 April 2021.
