Medical Humanities funding schemes
These funding schemes support individuals, collaborations and institutions to develop important initiatives in medical humanities.
Our funding schemes
Our funding embraces the broader medical humanities in a bid to encourage wider collaboration between historians of medicine and colleagues from other disciplines.
Funding for world-class researchers to address the most important questions.
Support enabling universities to attract and retain outstanding research staff.
Support for individuals not in established academic posts.
Support for small-scale research projects, scoping exercises or meetings in the medical humanities.
The Hub Award
Project funding and a stimulating space for researchers and other creative minds.
Grants and awards for libraries and archives
Our funding supports the preservation, conservation, cataloguing and digitisation of significant medical history collections in the UK and Republic of Ireland. In exceptional circumstances, strategically important collections held in other countries may be eligible for support.
Strategic Awards support ambitious large scale initiatives or research programmes that address our five research challenges. Applications through the Medical Humanities funding scheme may also seek to explore medicine in historical and cultural contexts more broadly.
