Springboard – Health of the Public 2040
We are delighted to announce a new call for applications, under our Springboard scheme, for researchers working in the health social sciences and medical humanities. Springboard – Health of the Public 2040 offers funding of up to £50,000 over two years and a bespoke package of career support to researchers at the start of their first independent post. We welcome applications working on projects related to the environments and themes that have emerged from the Academy’s ‘Improving the health of the public by 2040’ report.
Springboard – Health of the Public 2040 is now open for applications via Flexi-Grant.
The submission deadline for applications is 5 pm on Monday 12 December 2016.
About the scheme
This scheme is targeted at those who are in the early stages of their first independent research position. You should not have already obtained substantial funding from other sources, such as large personal fellowships.
Springboard – Health of the Public 2040 awardees will be invited to participate in the Academy’s one-to-one mentoring scheme and a programme of events and activities will be developed for their benefit.

The scheme is generously supported by the Wellcome Trust.
