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. Visits under this scheme may be to consult libraries or archives and to exchange views or work with colleagues who have similar research interests. Study or lecture tours, meetings of a professional or vocational nature, workshops, symposia and international congresses are normally excluded. 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.
Available throughout the year
The maximum award under this scheme is £1,500 (although a slightly higher limit may apply in the case of researchers from certain developing countries)
Hard copy of the application form including signatures should be sent to the Trust's postal address, marked for the attention of Grants Management - History of Medicine.
Applications may be submitted at any time during the year

Our broadly defined mission allows us to respond flexibly to medical needs and scientific opportunities. As well as tackling immediate priorities, our independence and long-term perspective enable us to support research that will benefit future generations.
The Trust employs over 500 staff in various departments. Our governing document is our constitution, and our Board of Governors has ultimate responsibility for what we do.
