£10 Million Available to Advance Understanding of Mental Health Conditions – 11th January 2019 (UK)

The Wolfson Foundation has announced a £10 million funding competition to support research to advance the understanding and treatment of mental health conditions. UK universities and research organisations are eligible to apply (individually or collaboratively) and it is likely that a single award will be made.

Applications can request funding for:

  • Endowment of chairs or posts, and programme costs for up to 5 years
  • Attracting key talent in the field to work in the UK
  • Training early career clinical researchers
  • New research facilities or equipment

Research should focus broadly on anxiety and depression, and particular interest will be shown in proposals relating to adolescent mental health as well as those drawing on insights from other areas of medicine.

Institutions wishing to apply to the Wolfson Foundation’s new mental health initiative should email an outline description of the proposal to the Wolfson Foundation office by Friday 11th January 2019.
