The Dean's Prize Awards

The Dean's Prize Awards is a Faculty-run programme offering funding for both clinical and non-clinical researchers who are looking to apply for externally funded, prestigious fellowships.

The Dean's Prize: Early Career Researcher Development Award

This award is available to non-clinical researchers who have between three and seven years of postdoctoral experience and are typically looking to apply for intermediate level fellowships.

This call is closed. For 2018/19, The Dean’s Prize will not run as we are recruiting to the University of Manchester FBMH Presidential Fellowships. For more information, please visit

The Dean's Prize for Clinicians

The call for The Dean’s Prize for Clinicians closed in November 2017.

This award is aimed at clinicians who already hold a PhD and who have completed (or are soon to complete) clinical specialist training, and who wish to apply for clinical intermediate/senior fellowships.

The award will buy out the time of the researcher to focus their efforts on getting their application to external funders to the highest, competitive standard.
