LADY TATA MEMORIAL TRUST INTERNATIONAL
AWARDS FOR RESEARCH IN LEUKAEMIA
ACADEMIC YEAR 2020-2021
The Trustees of the Lady Tata Memorial Trust invite applications for Awards for personal support for research on leukaemia and related conditions, in the Academic Year beginning 1st October 2020. Awards are restricted to studies of the treatment, epidemiology, pathogenesis, immunology and genetic basis of leukaemia. Applications not related to the field of leukaemia will not be considered.
Awards are open to suitably qualified investigators of any nationality. Priority will be given to those intending to move to other centres, with a view to establishing scientific collaboration between laboratories. In addition, one Lady Tata Studentship for a student entering an MPhil/PhD programme is available.
Awards are tenable for one year only. Renewal for a second year is exceptional; applicants are expected to seek funding from other sources for continuation of their work beyond the first year. Awards in recent years have been between £25,000 and £35,000 per annum. The MPhil/PhD
studentship will normally be granted for two years in the first instance. Renewal for a third year will only be considered for these studentships on the strength of a further application in the second year of their studies. To apply please visit our website www.ladytatatrust.org
Application open date is 1st January 2020. Deadline for applications is 15th March 2020. Awards will be announced by the Trustees in June 2020.
