MacQueen bursary 2022: how to apply

25 November 2021

The CPHVA Education and Development Trust is pleased to announce that applications for a MacQueen bursary are open for 2022.

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. 

Several bursaries are awarded annually (up to a maximum of £5000 per application, or £3000 for the travel award). All applicants must be current members of Unite-CPHVA. 

Please note that bursaries can only be awarded to the individual, 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.

Shortlisted applicants will be assessed by an online interview, to take place in March 2022.
