  • The proposed project must be fully delivered within the timeframe set out in the application, and within the funding amount awarded. Any unused funds will be returned to the Society, and any changes to the delivery date should be agreed with the awarding committee.
  • We encourage proposals that result in a resource or tool that can be hosted on our website for use by other members, or that can be used to reach under-served groups and communities.
  • Successful applicants are expected to submit a short report on completion of the project which may be in the form of a Pharmacology Matters article for dissemination to the membership.
