The College of Paramedics is again running a small grant scheme to support paramedic research. The aim is to support members of the College of Paramedics to carry out research studies.
A maximum of three studies will be funded to a maximum of £1,250 each. The money can be used to support any aspect of the study including, but not limited to:
- salary costs

- specific software, for example, for analysis
- support costs for lay/public involvement if these cannot be sourced elsewhere.
The money cannot be used to pay for fees or travel costs incurred as part of a programme of study or conference attendance.
Applications for funding are invited from members of the College of Paramedics who are interested in enhancing their research activity. Applications can be from an individual person, or a team of people.
