The Small Grant Awards from Fight for Sight supports early-career ophthalmology researchers and vision scientists in the UK to collect preliminary/pilot data to make research ideas more competitive when developing larger follow-on funding applications. As part of the new research strategy Fight for Sight will be transitioning away from clinical areas of strategic focus outlined in the previous strategy to the following patient pathway themes:

  • Understanding: Increasing understanding of how eye diseases and conditions start and develop
  • Prevention: Preventing eye diseases and conditions
  • Diagnosis: Enabling eye diseases and conditions to be detected earlier
  • Treatment: Developing new and improved treatments for eye diseases and conditions

The lead applicant/s must be affiliated with a UK academic or research institution. Lead applicants are expected to have a PhD or MD and and be able to demonstrate that they will have a salary for the lifetime of the grant. The award provides 15,000 GBP for 12 months.

Applications are due on September 13, 2023.
