BAS Special Award - Winner announced!

The BAS Special Award for Jargon Aphasia was a one-off special award due to a generous bequest made to the Society. The award is for £5000 awarded to a clinician (early-stage researcher) interested in research for the benefit of people with jargon aphasia and their families/carers

BAS is thrilled to have announced at our AGM that the winner of the Special Award is Susie Williams, with her project entitled "Exploring the support needs of carers of people with jargon aphasia". Susie will be supported by academic mentors, Dr Suzanne Beeke & Dr Anna Volkmer (UCL), Dr Sarah Northcott (City, University of London) and The ESNEFT research team.

BAS extends its huge thanks to the anonymous donor, to Fiona Menger (BAS Special Award and Small Grants Coordinator) and our panel of reviewers for this award.


BAS Seed Fund 2021 - recipients announced

Despite the pandemic, the BAS committee received five high quality applications for this year’s seed fund.
So, in an unprecedented year, the committee made an unprecedented decision and awarded seed funding to all applications. This was possible due to a reduction in other costs for this financial year, mainly conference travel funding for members, since many events were cancelled, and committee travel costs, as all committee meetings were moved online.

For BAS, it is fantastic to be able to support a range of innovative and creative projects during such challenging times for clinicians and people with aphasia.

For more information on the projects that received this year's BAS Seed Fund, and for information on how to apply for funding for the next round, please visit our BAS Seed Funding pages HERE
