BAS Awards and Funding opportunities

BAS offers a range of Funding and Prizes

BAS Special Award

Due to a generous bequest, the British Aphasiology Society is launching this one-off special award. The funding of up to £5000 will be awarded to a clinician who is interested in research for the benefit of people with jargon aphasia. The award will support a Speech and Language Therapist to engage with research activity in this area and should fund activity that could lead towards publications and/or further research activity and/or training.

BAS Seed Funding

Seed funding of up to £1000 per application is available and can be used to supplement other research/knowledge exchange funding that the applicants have already secured. The Seed Fund is for UK based activities that involve and benefit people with aphasia and their family members/carers. Some examples might be: support for events, new initiatives in aphasia, focus groups, or pilot research.
