The pump priming funding scheme accepts applications for small awards (up to £10k) to enable investigators to obtain pilot data to support larger scale applications for external research funding in the future. Non-staff research costs, including equipment, are eligible. Priority will be given to those applications that demonstrate matching funding from other sources.
The pre-fellowship scheme accepts applications for short-term (up to 3 months) funding to cover the salary costs of clinicians who will shortly begin an externally funded research training fellowship or DPhil at Oxford.
Funding for the Medical Sciences Internal Fund comes from the Nuffield Benefaction, the Goodger and Schorstein Fund and the Wellcome ISSF.
