Medical History and Humanities Travel Grants

Awarded by Wellcome Trust


Travel grants fund short-term visits by scholars based outside the UK or the Republic of Ireland to one of these countries.


You must be based outside the UK or the Republic of Ireland and be applying to visit one of these countries.

Experienced researchers need not be in academic life but will normally be expected to hold a doctorate or clinical qualification and have established a research interest in the medical humanities.
