Education Grants, 2020: Successful Applicants
Administered by the Global Snakebite Initiative (GSI)
The individual grants of £5,000 for 20 projects of 3-6 months targeted junior researchers and clinicians. There were about 40 bona fide applications but others were outside the stated criteria, such as: requests for equipment, payment of a laboratory worker’s salary and an ambitious request for $500,000. The applications were considered under the following headings:
- Merit and Originality
- Likelihood of Success
- Anticipated Benefits
The successful applicants will be asked to produce a 30-60 second video clip explaining the project, which can be uploaded to the Global Snakebite Initiative and Hamish Ogston Foundation websites with periodic information on progress.
