UKeiG offers a Research Award worth £1000 to assist its members in meeting the costs of a small research project.
The award is open to all current, paid-up members of UKeiG, apart from members of the Management Committee for the year in question and those who have received a Research Award within the last 3 years, who are excluded from applying. The award may be used for travel, subsistence, or any other legitimate expenses associated with the research work but will not be awarded to students engaged in academic research, whether full- or part-time. The research must be judged to be original and of value to the general community that UKeiG serves. Nominations should take the form of a short proposal, including details of research question/aims and objectives, methodology, timescale, research outcomes, and personnel involved. The proposal should also make clear how the UKeiG funding is to be used.
