In 2017, the Guarantors of Brain launch a new funding scheme to support neurologists from the UK in pro bono work towards teaching and research in low income countries. For many years, consultant neurologists in the UK have offered their time, experience and commitment towards teaching in low income countries, and in helping to establish local research networks and clinical services. This is a great part of the UKs leading tradition of Neurology, and our culture of support for colleagues and students in less advantaged environment
Applications up to £5000 will be considered, to cover your travel and accomodation expenses. We are also able to make a contribution towards any loss of salary if your teaching or research support is taken as unpaid leave from your Hospital or University.
It is anticipated that most visits will be in the range of two to four weeks, but visits of up to 3 months will be considered. Please see the Grants pages for more information and contact us early on if you are considering an application, for guidance and feedback. Successful applicants are required to submit a report to the Guarantors of Brain within 3 months of the end of the trip.
Applications will be considered twice a year, with deadlines on 20th February and 20th September. The application must be submitted electronically as PDF documents. Please ensure uploaded PDFs do not have restricted permissions or are password protected.
