Awards and Grants

The MPG Trustees are delighted to announce that the inaugural MAUDSLEY PHILOSOPHY GROUP AWARD has been awarded to MIchalis Kyratsous.

The annual MAUDSLEY PHILOSOPHY GROUP AWARD  is for newly-qualified psychiatrists undertaking postgraduate research into the ethical and philosophical issues central to the practice of psychiatry. Each award has a maximum value of £2,500 p.a. to meet the IoPPN tuition fees for the Medical Humanities MD(Res) degree over a period of (usually) four years. The total value of an award is therefore a maximum of £10,000. If you have been accepted onto the MD(Res) programme, or are thinking about applying, and would like more information about an MPG Award, please contact


We also offer small grants to support projects furthering the objectives of the charity. Two grants per year for sums not exceeding £1000 are available.  Examples of projects would include dissemination of research, workshops, support for scholarship and health services initiatives.

Please submit:

  1. a short description of your project and how it furthers a philosophically informed psychiatry (no more than one side of A4 including references),
  2. costs
  3. a CV.
