Entries are now being accepted for the 2019 Awards

Applications must be submitted by Monday 26th August 2019, at 23:59 (GMT).  Please note that applications made after this time will not be accepted.

As part of the award process, the BSF's Grants Advisory Committee use the following criteria when reviewing applications:

  • Value to patients with skin disease
  • Scientific quality
  • Value for money
  • How much support the Principal Investigator has had from the BSF in the past
  • For Studentships and Fellowships only: training environment

Please also note: Applicants must accept that the Grants Advisory Committee has a conflict of interest policy. Applicants do not have the right to request inclusion or exclusion of particular GAC panel members from the deliberations on their applications.

No more than one application (either a Research Award, a Studentship, a Fellowship or a Young Investigator Award) can be submitted by a Principal Investigator per application round.

Applications will not be accepted from Principal Investigators who currently hold an active BSF Large Grant as PI. Applications will be penalised if the PI has been awarded a BSF Large Grant in the previous 5 years as PI, or if the PI is a co-applicant on a currently active BSF Large Grant. The decision of the BSF Grants Advisory Committee for all applications is final.

Please note: The British Skin Foundation are no longer be able to provide feedback for unsuccessful grant applications
