Exclusions | Action Medical Research

Exclusions

Please note that we do not provide:

  • grants towards service provision or audit studies
  • grants purely for higher education, although Research Training Fellows are strongly encouraged to independently register for a PhD
  • course fees for degrees or subsistence costs
  • grants for medical or dental electives
  • grants for work undertaken outside the UK
  • any indirect costs such as administrative or other overheads imposed by the University or other Institution
  • costs associated with advertising and recruitment of staff
  • 'top up' funding for work supported by other funding bodies
  • costs to attend conferences (current Action Medical Research grantholders may apply separately as the need arises during the grant)
  • general appeals from other charities. Applications would normally come directly from research teams and projects need to be passed through our scientific peer review system
  • grants for research into complementary / alternative medicine
  • grants on how best to train clinical staff
  • grants on social research, family relationships or socioeconomic research
  • grants for very basic research with little likelihood of clinical impact within the short to medium term
  • applicants based in core funded units can apply but need to demonstrate added value.
