An all-day masterclass on how to improve your chances of success when applying for an NIHR Fellowship. Previous FAD events have comprised a range of talks from senior members of the NIHR Trainee’s Co-ordinating Centre, as well as current funding panel members, previous successful applicants and RDS advisers. Topics covered have included the funding programme, tips on the project, training plans, PPI & Plain English and how to ‘sell yourself’. FAD often provides an opportunity for researchers to have one-to-one meetings with RDS advisers to discuss their Fellowship applications.
