Clinical Doctoral Research Fellowship
The NIHR/CNO Clinical Doctoral Research Fellowship Scheme
The NIHR/CNO Clinical Doctoral Research Fellowship (C-DRF) scheme is aimed at post-degree nurses, midwives and allied health professionals sited in England who have at least 1 year's experience of clinical practice since graduating, have had sufficient research experience or research training to prepare them to undertake a PhD, and who wish to obtain a PhD by research whilst still developing their clinical skills. The C-DRF is an individual training award and offers funding to cover the salary costs of the award holder, their PhD tuition fees, and the costs of an appropriate research project and training and development programme. A C-DRF award will require that the individual has a contract of employment with the Host Employer for the duration of the Fellowship.
Please note that applicants must have current registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) or the Health and Care Professionals Council (HCPC) at the point of award. Please click here for the list of health professions that qualify for this award.
