A total of £600,000 is available for the fellowship awards. Funding is available for up to three years (full-time), with the expectation that individual applications will not exceed £300,000.  

APF funds research that has the potential either to:

  • contribute towards the discovery of an effective treatment or cure, or
  • accelerate change which will enable our community to live well for longer.

The Mike Bray Fellowships are an open call, however applicants are advised to refer to our newly launched Research Strategy to ensure their application aligns with our research priorities.
