Professional development grants – Wolfson UK bursaries

Closing date:

The purpose of the Wolfson UK bursaries is to improve the quality of care given to the patients in need of hospice and  palliative care, and to their families and carers. 

 The programme aims to support the professional development of individual staff, significantly increasing their expertise in the work they do, rather than training or updating them in the basic skills needed for their role.

Grants can be used to cover fees for university accredited palliative care courses including degree, masters and PhD level programmes and modules from the same. Some palliative care conferences may also be included.
