If you have any questions regarding the grants and bursaries please contact our membership and communications officer, Nancy, in the office.
There are four BASICS bursaries available, each worth £500. They are available to help with education-related costs for students members of BASICS. They can be used for a wide range of learning related costs including for attending courses and conferences, research associated costs for a dissertation or project as part of your degree course and also for clothing, books and other equipment for your course as well as transport and lunch on the days you study or train.

There are two grants of up to £1,000 each to provide support for BASICS members of all professions to undertake pre-hospital research. The grant may be used alone or in conjunction with grants from other bodies. It would be suitable for support of preclinical or clinical trials including randomised trials.
The BASICS Pre-hospital Research Development Grant:
This is a major grant of up to £2,500 to provide support for BASICS members of all professions to undertake pre-hospital research. The grant may be used alone or in conjunction with grants from other bodies. It is not designed for infrastructure development, travel to present findings from a previously completed piece of research, paying for the publication of a previously completed piece of work or living expenses. However, it would be suitable for support of preclinical or clinical trials, including randomised tests.
Scheme vehicle grant
A letter has been sent to the chairpersons of each of our affiliated schemes regarding the availability of monies to support costs related to their response vehicles (including those of individual members). Make sure your scheme chairperson has seen this and takes advantage of the potential opportunities offered.
