HEE/NIHR ICA Pre-doctoral Clinical and Practitioner Academic Fellowship (PCAF)

  Thursday, 10 Mar 2022 | Funding Deadline

The PCAF scheme offers salaried time to develop a doctoral fellowship application and to undertake funded academic training that will equip awardees with the skills and experience to access doctoral level funding.

The PCAF scheme has been re-named the Pre-doctoral Clinical and Practitioner Academic Fellowship to reflect its support for both those developing a clinical academic career and those eligible individuals developing a career combining research and other practice or policy roles.

The PCAF is open to early career researchers from the health and care professions (excluding doctors and dentists) who are committed to a practitioner academic career.

The PCAF scheme offers two distinct funding offers, which follow the same application process. You will be asked to specify which funding stream you would like to apply for.

  • PCAF: Funding to support the submission of a doctoral fellowship application and to undertake Masters-level training
  • PCAF Bridge: Funding to support submission of a doctoral fellowship application and to undertake some training

Deadline for proposals: 10 March 2022
