BSF Small Grant

A BSF Small Grant is available to anybody wishing to carry out U.K or R.O.I based research into skin disease

Only one project to be submitted per person per grant round

The project should be a small or pilot project

The maximum amount of funds available for each award is £10,000

Not more than 50% of the small grant to be used on buying equipment

If part of another project, the small grant is to make-up at least 30% of the total funding

Assessment of the grants will take into account requests which are of a more immediate clinical relevance

Applicants are expected to demonstrate the value of the project to dermatology

No ‘top-ups’ or extensions are available for any reason

The maximum duration of the award is 1 year (although this may be extended by negotiation where there are issues around flexible working or career breaks/maternity leave)

Successful awards must be activated within 12 months

Awards are claimed by authorised finance departments submitting a single invoice for the full amount

A scientific and a simple lay report to be submitted upon completion

Why donate to us?

There are eight million people living with a skin disease in the UK. Some are manageable, others are severe enough to kill. We are here to help change that.

We raise money to fund research for cures for skin disease and skin cancer, but research doesn't fund itself.

We are the UK's only charity dedicated to skin research, and all of our donations and fundraising events are crucial to enabling us to continue our work.

We have supported more than 300 research projects and awarded £15 million in funding across all skin diseases including eczema, psoriasis and many more.

Help us find a cure today.
