The British Academy of Childhood Disability (BACD) is pleased to announce Round 3 of the BACD-Castang Fellowship Programme for 2024, funded through the BACD-Castang neurodisability research programme.
The BACD-Castang Fellowships aim to identify, support, and develop childhood neurodisability research leaders. Fellowships are available to candidates from a relevant professional discipline (i.e. within neurodisability-related health care, education, or social care, or research).
Round 3 of the BACD-Castang Fellowship Applications includes two types of awards, both of which are open to UK-based multidisciplinary candidates:
- Pipeline Fellowship – for candidates who want to secure a funded PhD/MD award
- Advanced Fellowship – for research-experienced candidates who want to secure their next award
Fellowships include financial support up to the value of £1,000 for each successful candidate. Funding will be held and administered by BACD and will be used to support candidates’ standard class travel to Fellowship events, entry to the BACD Annual Scientific Meeting in 2024, and accommodation and subsistence for the events and Annual Meeting.
