Large grants

Medical research grants in Scotland

TENOVUS Tayside and NE Fife invite applications for TENOVUS Scotland Research Grants.

Awards of up to £100,000 will be made:

  1. Preference is given to:
    • Pump priming studies, which are thought likely to lead to subsequent funding from major grant-giving bodies
    • Innovative patient-related projects
    • Early career investigators
    • Applications from investigators lacking other substantive support in the early stages of a new project
    • Recent recruits
    • New collaborations between established investigators
  2. Tenovus Scotland - Tayside & NE Fife does not fund:
    • Applications for work that will be conducted outside of the relevant region
    • Applications that fail to provide evidence of appropriate ethical permission, or statistical justification for sample/cohort sizes (where appropriate)
    • Equipment for routine patient care or for assessment of new products, which the manufacturer might be expected to finance
  3. Furthermore, while there are no hard rules, Tenovus Scotland - Tayside & NE Fife does not usually fund:
    • Applications from established investigators for work within their usual field of expertise
    • Applications from  PhD or otherstudents
    • Applications for follow-on work previously funded by Tenovus Scotland- Tayside & NE Fife, except in exceptional circumstances
    • Partial funding for projects supported by other funders or other bodies
  4. Additional points:
    • While Tenovus Scotland - Tayside & NE Fife will consider applications from postdoctoral researchers, these require clear support from their current supervisor as a co-applicant.
    • It is important that the principal investigator has tenure of contract for the duration of the award.  In occasional cases where this is not the case, the nominated co-applicant who will substitute as principal investigator must be clearly identified
    • The proposed start date and project duration should be clearly indicated on the application form (please note that the start date should be a minimum of 4 months after the closing date)
    • The Tenovus Scotland - Tayside & NE Fife Regional Reference Code for each project must be used on all correspondence including and in particular on all invoices submitted to Tenovus Scotland - Tayside & NE Fife for payment
    • Large Project Grants are primarily intended to support running costs, salaries and/or for research studentships. Requests to fund equipment for research will also be considered
    • All applications will be submitted to detailed peer review
    • We encourage researchers to publish their research in open-access journals
    • Please do not include letters of support or recommendation
