Applications for funding from trust funds

RCP members and fellows will be able to apply for funding from the RCP trust funds from January 2018.

Information for applicants

Anyone interested in applying for funds from the RCP should first check the available awards, and apply directly if the project suits one of these opportunities. As per the Funding and Awards Management Committee terms of reference, funds granted are generally:

  • a one-off payment
  • paid over a maximum of 2 years
  • unable to be reapplied for within 3 years

Applications should be directed to the five strategic themes of the RCP and toward academic research. The committee will not usually support salaries or degrees.

Application periods

Applications will next be accepted between 1 January 2018 and 28 February 2018. After this period, all applications received will be assessed by the Funding and Awards Management Committee, and decisions will be made in April.

Please note that the committee is unable to review applications or allocate funds prior to this period.
