The next annual meeting of the UKEGS will be held on 27th and 28th November 2014 at the Royal Marriott Hotel, Bristol.
Each year the UK and Eire Glaucoma Society (UKEGS), with the support of the International Glaucoma Association (IGA), awards research grant(s), up to the value of £75,000. The maximum award will be £50,000 but the awards committee welcomes applications for lesser amounts with the awards being made based on the quality of the application and the expected benefit to patients with glaucoma. The deadline for grant applications is 22nd September 2014.
Please note the acceptance of the IGA research contract is a prerequisite of applying for research funding. If any changes are proposed to the research contract, and require legal review, the costs accrued will be deducted from the research grant. You can download the Research Grant Agreement from the Research Grant Agreement section of this website.
Animal experimentation is specifically excluded from work supported by the International Glaucoma Association Fellowships.
