Student Research Bursaries

The Paget’s Association is pleased to offer Student Research Bursaries of £6,000. The bursaries are designed to encourage promising UK science or medical students, Allied Health Professionals, and nurses, to pursue research into any aspect of Paget’s Disease of Bone.

The Association will provide funding to support recipients in their current or future study towards PhD degrees. Support for intercalated medical Masters students will also be considered. Please note, for postgraduate Masters students the Association now supports fully-funded MRes projects (new for 2022).

Please feel free to contact the Association for guidance on individual eligibility. There is flexibility for the funding to be shared between the student (as stipend, up to 100%) and their institution (research costs, up to 50%). The recipients will be invited to attend the Association’s Annual General Meeting in the Autumn of 2022, to receive the award.
