MacQueen bursary 2021: how to apply

20 November 2020

The CPHVA Education and Development Trust is pleased to announce that applications for a MacQueen bursary are now open for 2021. 

Applications are invited to fund any of the following activities:

  • Initiatives undertaken in practice to facilitate the health and wellbeing of individuals, groups or communities
  • A research project focused on the enhancement of practice in community settings
  • Engagement in professional or academic study activities to enhance the applicant’s practice
  • Travel costs associated with an overseas public health project that will enable the winner to either engage in a public health project or to explore an initiative to determine its relevance to UK practice.

A total sum of £25,000 is available and a number of applications will be supported (up to a maximum of £5000 per application or £3000 for the travel award).

Project applications may involve a multiprofessional team, providing at least one individual has current membership of Unite-CPHVA. Please note that bursaries can only be awarded to the individual or group and not an employing organisation.

Applicants will need to state the total amount they are seeking and should include a detailed costing for the project or study activity. Priority will be given to the shortlisted applications that demonstrate the greatest potential to enhance practice.

Nominations forms can be downloaded from or email [email protected]

Shortlisted applicants for bursaries of over £2000 must be available to attend a virtual interview in early March 2021.

  • Closing date for the receipt of applications is 5pm on 31 January 2021
