Our Grants and Awards
These are the funding opportunities we have available for our SRUK/CERU members.
SRUK/CERU Emerging Talent Award
The objective of this award is to support a young Spanish researcher with an outstanding professional career in the UK while facilitating the dissemination of their research in both Spanish and British societies.
SRUK/CERU Professional Development Grants
These grants are open to Regular Members only and are aimed at supporting the total or partial costs of travel, registration fees, and/or accommodation of early-career researchers (undergraduate students, post-graduate students, and post-doctoral researchers) from all research fields to an international research conference worldwide to present their research. In addition, they can also be used to cover the costs of organising a research workshop or course.
SRUK/CERU On the Move Fellowships
The objective of this programme is to strengthen international collaborations between PhD students and researchers in the UK (SRUK/CERU members) and Spain (CRUE Universities and research institutes) to promote the contact between research groups in both countries
The goal of these studentships is to support and strengthen the practical skills of Spanish students by covering the costs of the internships at those research facilities where Regular Members of SRUK/CERU have offered to host them. If you are a SRUK/CERU member and you would like to host one of these students at your research laboratory, you will also be able to gain leadership skills, enrich your CV, and create networks with Spanish universities.
SRUK/CERU Merit Award
This award, which is delivered every two years, recognises the outstanding career of a Spanish researcher who has significantly contributed to their research field and has had a big impact on the wider society.
