CAHPR Awards

The CAHPR Small Research Grant Awards are jointly run by The North East of England and Yorkshire and Humber CAHPR hubs, with an aim to support AHP research and innovation in the region.

The awards annually support up to five novice AHP researchers to carry out a small piece of research/innovation, with a view to facilitating these five candidates to develop a research active career in the future.

Up to five studies are funded each year, to a maximum of £1,000 each. The money can be used to support any aspect of the study including but not limited to: salary costs, equipment, patient public involvement, and transcription costs.

Applications are invited from qualified AHPs who are interested in enhancing their research capability. The application should be made as a group (with two or more people in the group).

The lead applicant must be a qualified AHP; the co-researchers do not have to be so. The lead applicant must be a novice researcher (i.e. they must not have or be registered for a PhD).

Within the team there should be an individual who has experience of supervising research students who will act as the applicant’s supervisor. If you are a novice researcher who would like to apply but you are not part of a group and do not know anyone who would be willing to act as a supervisor, please contact us and we will attempt to put you in touch with a suitable supervisor.

The study can be primary or secondary research, or a service evaluation – but must have a multidisciplinary element with two or more different AHP disciplines represented on the project team. Studies with a strong multidisciplinary element will be looked upon favourably.

The proposed project should be able to deliver findings within one year. At the end of the project the successful applicants will be asked to present their work at their local CAHPR hub and to write a short paper on their work.
