Research Bursaries In Conjunction With The Singing For Health Network

Wednesday 3rd February 2021

Voice Study Centre are happy to support the new Singing for Health network initiative and Director Deborah Winter is proud to have kickstarted the funding campaign for this network.

You can find out more by clicking here.

The network launch is on Wednesday 24th February, at 1pm. The Singing for Health Network (UK) has emerged following several years of development and identified gaps. The Network seeks to provide a bridge between research and practice, making research accessible and useful to practitioners. It will also support and platform emerging researchers and their work. At the launch, you will be joined by Victoria Hume – Director of CHWA (Culture, Health and Well-being Alliance), Professor Grenville Hancox (one of the UKs first Singing for Health researchers and practitioners) and Dr Hilary Moss from the University of Limerick.

The Network aims to support the Singing for Health movement, through supporting opportunities for sharing and consolidating intelligence and resources.

Voice Study Centre is currently developing the Singing for Health Research Bursary, a new non-profit project to support research in this area. As part of our Corporate Social Responsibility programme, VSC is committed to supporting practitioners develop research without experiencing financial barriers.

This is a fully funded opportunity for experienced voice practitioners and researchers to conduct research in cutting-edge emergent areas of Singing for Health. We are greatly looking forward to launching this funding opportunity at the Singing for Health Network initiative.

Join us at the Singing for Health Network webinar where we’ll be sharing more information regarding our new Research Bursary scheme.
