Applicants should be aware that the following criteria will also be applied when the Research
Committee considers the nominations:

•
Travel for collaborative laboratory work is of higher priority than attendance at
conferences. The latter may be funded when it can be shown that there is a direct
pump-priming element to attending the conference.
The STF will make awards twice per year. Applicants who have previously received
awards from the STF will be given a lower priority.
Proposals that form a direct part of a funded project will only be funded in exceptional
circumstances and justification must be given why support is being requested from the
HPRU EZI Scientific Training Fund.
Further guidance notes are available with the application form.
Applications should be submitted to the HPRU EZI Office ([email protected]) by

Guidelines for HPRU EZI Award application
1) The fund is open to all HPRUEZI research staff and members, including research
students. It is not intended for students attending taught courses, except under
exceptional circumstances, when a pre-proposal (not more than one side of A4)
should be submitted for approval. The following should be particularly noted:



The fund is particularly targeted at ‘pump-priming’ research projects and a major
factor in their evaluation will be the link to specific future funding opportunities.
Travel for collaborative laboratory work will be given high priority. Attendance at
conferences may be funded but with lower priority.
Applicants who have previously received awards from this fund will be given lower
priority.
Projects that form part of a PhD project will only be funded in exceptional
circumstances and justification must be given as to why support is being
requested from the Fund.
2) Briefly give details of the specific aims of the proposal, including any strategic value
the project would have to the development of research or education in the HPRU EZI.
3) The complete application should not exceed three sides of A4. Applicants should
therefore describe the background to their proposal and the specific projects to be
undertaken briefly, but with enough detail to enable reviewers to make an informed
decision.
4) Please justify why you are requesting funds from the HPRU EZI Scientific Training
Fund, the contribution that this project will make to your personal development and
the level of support requested.
5) The budget should normally be in GBP but please indicate other currencies, if used.
The committee will make its awards in GBP. A full budget breakdown is required for
your application and those showing significant contributions from other sources will be
given priority as some contribution towards the full cost is expected. The amount of
money awarded varies considerably but tends to be in the range £500-£1,000.
6) Applications should be endorsed by your PI or HPRU EZI Theme Leader. A letter of
support may accompany the application.
7) Six months after the award, successful applicants will be expected to submit a report
(approximately 250 words) giving information about the work undertaken and any
specific outcomes (e.g. grant applications or funding)
Applications should be submitted to the HPRU EZI Office, to [email protected]
