GLADD is pleased to offer funding awards, to promote research in the fields of LGBT medical and dental healthcare and education.

GLADD’s constitutional aims include the collection and dissemination of information on LGBT issues relevant to the practice of medicine and dentistry. To support this, GLADD offers discretionary funding awards to support members in carrying out or communicating their research.

Awards of up to £100 are available per project.

Submissions should document an original audit, research (including systematic review), or other project, in the field of LGBT healthcare or medical and dental education.

Applicants are invited to submit an abstract of their project, on which the merits of application will be judged. The abstract should outline: the relevance of the project to LGBT health, education, or equality and diversity in healthcare; the methodology of the project; the results of the project, with reference to reliability of results, transferability of conclusions, or success of implementation; opportunities for further development or research.

Submissions will be accepted throughout the year. They will be independently assessed by three members of the GLADD executive committee, who have no conflicting interests in the project. The assessors must then unanimously agree whether or not to grant the award. The GLADD Chair will make the final decision if the assessors are unable to agree. All awards will be endorsed by the GLADD executive committee.

Successful applicants are required to acknowledge GLADD support on publication or presentation of their project. Successful abstracts will be published on the GLADD website. Successful applicants are also required to submit a short report on their project for dissemination in GLADD communications.
