BAS offers a range of Funding and Prizes

Seed Funding

Seed funding of up to £1000 per application is available and can be used to supplement other research/knowledge exchange funding that the applicants have already secured. The Seed Fund is for UK based activities that involve and benefit people with aphasia and their family members/carers. Some examples might be: support for events, new initiatives in aphasia, focus groups, or pilot research.
