- Are you interested in research?
- Do you know of someone who is involved in exercise research?
- Can you help progress middle-distance running?
The BMC is looking for individuals to help us progress middle-distance running by conducting a creative and innovative piece of research. We believe that one way in which we can support this aim is to offer a scholarship of up to £2000 to help at least one individual pursue a selected topic. The scholarship has been in place now since 2008 and we are currently funding active research.
Coaches, research students, or lecturers may be interested and are welcome to apply. The Scholarship is open to all BMC members, but we are also opening the application process to non-members so that we can cast the net far and wide.
How to apply?
The application process is a simple two stage exercise. The first step is to complete an application form which is available below. This is to be submitted to the BMC by the closing date. The second stage will involve short-listing the best applications and then holding short interviews. After this we will inform the successful candidate of our decision and support them to conduct the research in the months and years ahead. The findings will be widely distributed to all BMC members and if appropriate, beyond.
Why the Frank Horwill Scholarship?
The late Frank Horwill MBE was the founding member of the BMC in 1963. As well as working tirelessly for the Club, Frank became extremely well known for his work on research and collating research from around the world on middle-distance and endurance running. In order to safeguard his tradition, this scholarship has been established.
