NASS Research Grants & Bursaries

NASS is delighted to announce the launch of a brand new Research Fund and Educational Bursary Fund.  As many of you will know back in 2013 we held an event at Lancaster University and then asked our supporters to tell us what they see as being the main areas they would like to see covered in research.

From this our Research Priorities 2013 - 2018 was produced.

Research Fund

Applications for the Research Fund are welcome from clinicians, healthcare professionals and lay persons resident in the UK.  There were five top research priorities identified for NASS by our members but applications outside of this remit will also be considered. The top five areas are:

·       Flares
·       Fatigue
·       Awareness
·       Exercise
·       Self-Management

Awards up to a maximum of £30,000 will be available and the total amount available is £150,000.

Educational Bursaries

NASS is offering a brand new Educational Bursary Scheme of up to £1,000 to assist individuals in learning and development activities such as post-graduate university study or professional short courses. The learning from these activities should enhance patient care and experience for those with ankylosing spondylitis (axial spondyloarthritis).
