Applying for NIHR research bursaries and fellowships

A wide variety of internships, bursaries and fellowships are open to enable MFT nurses, midwives and allied health professionals to study for postgraduate research degrees, either full time or part time.

In particular, the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) fund prestigious MRes, PhD and post-doctoral bursaries and fellowships which cover full employment and other costs.  An idea of the breadth of opportunities and support available can be seen in the diagram below. The University of Manchester and MFT have a good history of supporting and supervising successful applicants for the NIHR awards and as such, if you are thinking of applying, we strongly recommend that you contact Tim Twelvetree or one of the other MFT multiprofessional research team first.
