Stack Fellowship

The Stack Travelling Fellowship of the British Society for Surgery of the Hand was introduced in memory of Graham Stack to recognise both achievement and contribution to the development of Hand Surgery in the United Kingdom. It is one of the most prestigious awards bestowed by the BSSH and is intended for Consultants who are full members of BSSH or for senior trainees who are associate members and who have completed a hand surgery fellowship. 

Deadline to apply: 31st July 2023
Please find further information here.

Research Fellowship

The aim of the Research Grant/Fellowship is to fund clinical or basic science research of relevance to hand surgery. It is anticipated that this funding source will be used to fund a fellowship for a trainee, but applications from therapists for fellowships under the supervision of a BSSH member and non-fellowship research projects run by BSSH members will be considered equally. Studies to support research to assist a commercial enterprise will not be considered. Maximum funds of £50,000 per year are available. 

Deadline to apply: 31st January 2024
