Funds are spent in the region (Edinburgh, Grampian, Strathclyde and Tayside) where they are raised, supporting research in academic institutions and clinical centres in that area. This local accountability ensures close monitoring of funding to maximise the benefits.
There are many exciting pilot research projects that we could support, with the potential to make a major impact on future health. All donations help us fund today’s research for tomorrow’s health.
We will make the most of your donation. Many involved in Tenovus Scotland volunteer their services and this keeps our administration costs to a minimum, so over 96p in every £1 donated in the last 6 years is used to fund research.
Tenovus Scotland pilot grants are small (up to £20,000 dependent on Region) so even modest support from you can make a significant contribution towards an additional grant being made. There is no risk of any contribution being lost in a much larger pool.
Tenovus Scotland has a rigorous two-stage scientific ‘peer review’ process, with independent external expert reviewers selecting the best projects both locally and then nationally in Scotland. So you can be sure your donation is funding the very best projects.
By donating, you are making a difference at the key early stage of medical research, funding tomorrow’s potential big medical breakthroughs. You are also helping early-career scientists, enabling them to develop their research career in Scotland.
Tenovus Scotland funds projects from across the full range of medicine and healthcare. By supporting us, you are not limited to research into any single disease area, but will be funding the best scientific studies in any clinical area.
The funding of pilot studies allows ideas to be developed to the point where they can be funded at a national level, driving forward understanding and also the careers of new research scientists.
