April 2020

In light of current circumstances, the British Skin Foundation has been forced to make changes to the scheduling of its 2020 grant giving. This will allow the Foundation the time to assess the requirements of all those involved in the grant process including Grants Advisory Committee members, investigators and research institutions.

We appreciate that grant applicants will have plans in place for the coming year but ask everyone concerned to understand that this new time frame will ensure that the British Skin Foundation is able to maintain the high standards of its grant giving and continue its key role in the future of UK dermatology research.

The following changes to the advertised schedule are now in place.

The 2020 Small Grant Awards

The closing date for Small grant applications is now Friday 29th May 2020 (@23:59pm GMT).

Small grants will be awarded Thursday 24th September.

The 2020 Research Awards

The BSF will now be welcoming applications for its major awards from Monday 26th October with a closing date of Friday 5th March 2021 (@ 23.59pm GMT).

These awards will be made in early July at the 2021 British Association of Dermatologists annual conference.
