Wellcome-Beit Prize Fellowships
The Wellcome-Beit Prize Fellowships are intended to provide additional recognition for four outstanding biomedical researchers who have been awarded other Wellcome Trust fellowship funding. The awards were inaugurated in 2009 and replaced the Beit Memorial Fellowships for Medical Research.
The Beit Memorial Fellowships were originally founded and endowed in 1909 by Sir Otto Beit as a memorial to his brother Alfred, to promote the advancement by research of medicine and allied sciences, and their relation to medicine.
£25 000 is awarded to each of four selected Research Career Development Fellows or Intermediate Clinical Fellows in addition to the salary and research expenses already to be funded by the Wellcome Trust. The £25 000 prize money can be used flexibly in support of the fellows' ongoing research.
Wellcome-Beit Prize Fellowships are considered during the interview process for Wellcome Trust Research Career Development Fellowships and Intermediate Clinical Fellowships. No separate application is required.
