Bowel Disease Research Foundation (BDRF) is offering a Travelling Research Fellowship to a recently appointed consultant member of the Association of Coloproctology of Great Britain and Ireland (ACPGBI) wishing to undertake a period of research in another unit or to promote a collaboration.

This is most likely to be of interest to ACPGBI members already engaged in collaborative work but may also be used to promote a new multicenter research collaboration or undertake a period of scientific or clinical research.


Applicants must be a Consultant member of ACPGBI within 5 years of substantive appointment on the day of closure of applications.

Terms and Conditions

  • The Fellowship must be taken up within 6 months of the award.
  • Reasonable travel expenses will be paid, together with other expenses up to a maximum of £5,000 upon submission of receipts.
  • The successful Fellow will be expected to provide a written report, participate in publicity about the Fellowship and give a presentation at the ACPGBI annual meeting
