The British Paediatric Surveillance Unit (BPSU) at the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health is pleased to announce that we are once again inviting applications for the Sir Peter Tizard Research Bursary 2014-15. The BPSU facilitates epidemiological research into rare childhood diseases and conditions. The Tizard Bursary offers a spot of the BPSU reporting cards worth £12,500 and a £1,000 stipend for training purposes. The bursary is open to paediatric trainees and newly qualified consultants wishing to undertake an epidemiological research study into a rare disease or condition that affects children and addresses a question of clinical or public health importance. The bursary may be of interest to some of your members. More details on the bursary can be found at

To be eligible for the bursary applicants must be:
  • members of the RCPCH;
  • not previously undertaken a BPSU study;
  • be paediatricians with NHS contracts (PT or FT) who are Training grade doctors at any ST level or Consultant grade (less than three years in post);
  • only one application may be submitted per year by each applicant;
  • two candidates may submit an application together, but both applicants’ criteria will be considered by the BPSU Scientific Committee during the review process.
The closing date for applications is Friday 17th October 2014.
