The University Forum for Human Resource Development invites applications for one of its Research Honoraria.
In this, the 2017 round of funding it is anticipated that up to three awards will be made. Whilst each award is normally capped at a maximum of £1000, modest exceptions to this will be considered. Honorarium awards can be made to individuals, or teams, in institutions that are full members of the UFHRD. Lecturers, researchers and postgraduates are all encouraged to apply – we would particularly encourage proposal from less experienced HRD scholars or practitioners. However, please note that proposals will not be accepted which simply seek financial assistance to complete Masters or doctoral work. An important goal of the Honorarium is to help broaden participation in HRD research activity. Normally, therefore, the applicant should not be the holder of an ongoing Honorarium. The Honorarium should enable commencement (or completion) of work that might not otherwise be possible to be undertaken and which contributes to promoting HRD as a field of study and professional practice. The award will be paid on satisfactory submission of agreed outputs (see also below). A mentoring system is in place to provide support for less experienced recipients towards successful submission, post project, to appropriate journals.
Submissions should be a maximum of two pages (excluding short CVs) and should be emailed as a word attachment to Dr Alison Hollinrake at firstname.lastname@example.org. Enquiries relating to the Honorarium should also be directed to Alison Hollinrake.
The closing date for applications is 21 December, 2016. All applications will be reviewed by a panel drawn from the Forum Council. Awards will be made by the end of February 2017. Ideally, outputs should be delivered by the end of December 2017.
