TYAC Research Bursaries for Nursing and Allied Health Professionals
Closing Date: 08/03/2023
Grants for nurses and allied health professionals working in clinical practice in oncology or haematology to conduct short-term projects specifically related to cancer in teenagers and young adults.
Teenagers and Young Adults With Cancer (TYAC), part of the Children’s Cancer and Leukaemia Group (CCLG), is a specialist network of professionals who treat and care for teenagers and young adults with cancer (those aged 13-24 years). TYAC also offers membership for professionals involved in the care and support of teenagers and young adults with cancer.
The aims of TYAC are to build a membership community for professionals who work with TYA cancer, act as professional voice for teenagers and young adults with cancer and their need for specialist care, and lead and fund world-class research dedicated to teenage and young adult cancer. The TYAC research strategy, launched in November 2021, is based on the priorities identified in the James Lind Alliance TYA Cancer Priority Setting Partnership (TYA PSP).
The TYAC Research Bursaries for Nurses and Allied Health Professionals will support nurses and allied health professionals working in oncology or haematology in the UK to conduct short-term research projects specifically related to cancer in teenagers and young adults. The objective of the bursary scheme is to support individuals who are interested in research and wish to gain experience and skills.
Projects should be clearly defined, have a clear output (ie a publication in a peer reviewed journal) and may be standalone, part of a wider project, or support research to obtain preliminary data before applying for further career grants, such as a Masters or PhD fellowship.
Projects must address one of the top ten research priorities identified by the TYA Cancer Priority Setting Partnership.
