UHNM Charity helps fund vital local healthcare research grants
UHNM Charity has teamed up with the North Staffordshire Medical Institute (NSMI) to offer local healthcare projects grants of up to £25,000 towards potentially life-saving research.

We are delighted to announce the 2024 NSMI grant award round is now open. The UHNM charity has again this year matched funding enabling us to offer grants of up to £25,000 per project. All awards will recognize both NSMI and UHNM in their research outputs. Research projects are welcomed from all areas that aim to assist in medical/health care, where work impacts upon patient care, both directly and indirectly. Applications should be submitted via the online portal here. Funding round 1 will close at 5pm on April 30th.

Please note, there has been a small change to the application process for 2024. In the first instance, applicants are invited to submit to the NSMI Research Awards Round 1; providing a lay summary and outline of justification for resources. Please see the updated grant application for further details. Successful Round 1 applicants will be invited to submit a more detailed application to Round 2 for consideration, also available on the updated application form.
