The Clinical Research Training Fellowships from the British Heart Foundation support established researchers in the UK to train and educate clinical PhD students (applications for two years to complete an MD or equivalent will be considered). The primary supervisor must devote a minimum of 10% of their time to supervising the student and a second supervisor should also be included. Clinical Research Training Fellowship candidates are eligible to apply for accelerated endorsement of the UK Global Talent Visa. The award provides funding for 3 years, covering:
- Salary of student
- Research consumables directly attributable to the project, usually less than £14,000 per year, but larger amounts will be considered if fully justified
- Tuition fees at standard home student rate (set by the research institution)
- Travel funding of up to £500 per year to present research at or attend scientific meetings relevant to the grant
Applications are assessed on a rolling basis and applicants are encouraged to apply at any time.
