Funding for Patient Involvement


If you have been thinking about involving patients and the public in your research, but are in need of funding to support this involvement, these bursaries are for you.  Priority is currently being given to PPI in covid-19 research.

We are able to offer up to four £500 starter grants to researchers looking to run small PPI activities, and one innovation grant worth up to £2000 to researchers planning a PPI activity that uses an innovative approach to involving patients and the public that will have a wider impact on the practice of PPI.

We are also offering two grants of up to £300 specifically for PhD students to carry out PPI.

Researchers and PhD students are eligible if they – or the lead researcher for their project – are based at UCL.

Applications are particularly invited from those who plan to involve groups who are currently under-represented in research.

Applications for PPI grants are now open . The deadline for application is midnight on the 4th of July 2021.
