How are the scholarships awarded?

The fund may support local research in one of two ways: By providing small grants to individuals to assist them in the conduct, analysis or presentation of their own research. By providing funding to employ somebody with a particular skill that can be used by many junior researchers. For example, by paying for sessions of medical statistics time, or secretarial time to transcribe interviews. The balance of these two forms of funding will be determined by the financial health of the Fund and by decisions of the committee.
