BAPAM Shipley-Rudge Awards are designed to facilitate research networks and grow the Performing Arts Medicine knowledge base through enabling practitioners and students associated with BAPAM to attend relevant conferences and meetings, as well as to promote BAPAM and the MSc in Performing Arts Medicine at UCL.
The Scheme is available to BAPAM assessing clinicians, staff, registered practitioners, students enrolled in UCL MSc in Performing Arts Medicine and student members of the BAPAM Student Advocate Scheme. Applicants must be actively involved in research and education initiatives relevant to performer health. Priority is given to applicants who have not received previous support.
Application process and conditions
Grants are awarded towards expenses as follows:
- Conference registration fees
- Travel costs
- Resource preparation (graphics/printing)
The maximum amount awarded is £400 although exceptional situations may be considered. The exact amount awarded is agreed in advance.
Award recipients are expected to network and highlight BAPAM’s work when attending events, including via social media, promote the link with the UCL Performing Arts Medicine MSc, and to produce a brief report suitable for the BAPAM News blog or Journal.
To apply please contact BAPAM Chief Executive, Dr Deborah Charnock firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll send you more detailed guidance about the information we need and the application and decision making process. Decisions are generally made within 10 working days.
Two prizes (each £200) are awarded annually to students completing the MSc: one for the highest mark for the research project, and one for the highest mark overall. Where possible, recipients are invited to attend a BAPAM training day to receive the award and deliver a presentation on their MSc research.
