ISBNPA invites applications for LMIC Scholarship Grant 2019 from early (5 years post-PhD) and mid-career (5-15 years post-PhD) researchers in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs)
The objective is to provide funding to conduct formative or pilot research, or for an existing study, where funds are insufficient to complete the study such that the results can be disseminated, and to present study findings at an ISBNPA conference.
Early career researchers should be up to 5 years post-PhD. Mid-career researchers should be 5-15 years post-PhD
Consideration may be given to PhD students in their final year of PhD, but this would need to be strongly motivated
Applicants should be living and working in, and funded by an institution or organisation in a low- or middle-income country; or may be living and working in a high-income country but funded by an institution or organisation in a low- or middle-income country (as recognised by the World Bank)
Each early career applicant should identify a mid-career (5-15 years post PhD) or senior researcher (+15 years post PhD) who is willing to act as a mentor for their project. Mid-career applicants should identify a senior researcher as a mentor for their project. It would be preferable for the mentor to be a member of ISBNPA, and for them to reside in the same country as the applicant. A strong motivation would need to be made for a mentor to be outside the applicant’s country
Applicants may be eligible for funding no more than once every three years
