To mark World Leprosy Day, we are opening a call for applications for the remaining £1,000 of the Robert Cochrane Fund for Leprosy. The funding is to be awarded to further research in the field of leprosy and in honour of Robert Cochrane, the eminent leprologist.
Since 1983, we have managed the Robert Cochrane Fund for Leprosy. The fund was established to support travel awards to obtain or provide practical training in fieldwork or in research into leprosy.
The call for the remaining £1,000 of the fund is now open, with the deadline for applications on 4 May 2018. Funds will be disbursed from July 2018.
This is not the end of our work on leprosy, future funding for leprosy research would be welcome as part of small grants programme which is also open for applications.
The closing date for applications is Friday 4 May 2018, disbursements will be from July 2018. All applicants must travel between July 2018 and July 2019.
