In line with our strategic intentions and operational framework, The Elizabeth Casson Trust offers funding support and development opportunities to qualified occupational therapists to further the profession of occupational therapy. Opportunities are open primarily to occupational therapists in the United Kingdom but we also accept international requests for some awards (see each award page for further information).
Applications for courses, designing your own learning events, innovation awards and pump-primer research awards are received year round; others, such as applications for conferences, postgraduate studies and international scholarships awards have specific windows for applying so please plan your development activities in plenty of time.
We welcome all applications however we ask that you make a personal contribution, where possible, and only request the amount of funding needed to enable you to pursue the learning opportunity. This allows us to support as many occupational therapists as possible and to be equitable and fair based on need.
We suggest taking a moment to watch this short video before starting your application.
