This year, the International Committee wants to broaden the scope of the grant awards and type of project supported. Applications are welcomed with a predominant medical, nursing or AHP focus, in adult or paediatric settings. An emphasis on demonstrating how the project will lead to a sustainable partnership or defined improvement should be central to the application.
The maximum value of a single grant award is £10,000.
Applications for International Grant Awards will be considered in the following categories;
A. New project proposal for a clinical visit.
B. Returning project proposal from a team that has received a previous BSG International Grant.
C. Funding to support a specific research project based overseas.
D. Funding to support the development of educational resources that will be a valuable tool for training related to GI diseases.
The funding is NOT intended for equipment other than that which is required for training or is purely educational in its use and only reasonable ‘standard rate’ travel and accommodation costs will be supported. Successful projects must be undertaken within 12 months of the award of the BSG International Grant.
You can see recent examples of the work funded in the International section of the BSG website.
