Royal College of Anaesthetists (RCoA) Research, Education and Travel Grants

The National Institute of Academic Anaesthesia has several small grants funded by the Royal College of Anaesthetists for the purpose of supporting research, education or travel connected with the study of anaesthesia. Priority will be given to educational projects, the presentation of original work or the provision of education to developing countries.

Please note that the assessment process can take up to three months from the deadline. Applications should be submitted for travel or projects that will be taking place from December onwards and unfortunately retrospective applications cannot be considered.
