The NIHR Applied Research Collaboration Kent, Surrey and Sussex (ARC KSS) has launched its 2022 round of Individual Development Awards (IDAs) to help support individuals, to build their research careers through our SpringBoard Awards.

These Awards are aimed at individuals employed by a health or social care organisation who are an ARC KSS member organisation.  The awards are for £5,000, over six months, for individuals, employed by a health or social care organisation - including social work, private, or charity sector and public health - to undertake activities aimed at developing research skills. The activities that will be funded can be found in our advert (link below).

There are two SpringBoard application deadlines for this year. Therefore, applications should be submitted for consideration by 5pm on: 29 April 2022 or 16 September 2022. 

All awards need to closely align with one or more of the ARC KSS research themes and will be allocated to applicants that can demonstrate a clear path in their career development, as well as evidence of how this award will help them towards their research goals.

In return, ARC KSS will provide a bespoke programme of support to successful applicants, including academic and/ or a health or social care professional mentor.
