For those who are not able to travel to the UK to attend the in-person Workshop, the Compare Online Writing for Publication Programme  was launched in September 2011 and is available to support new writers to the journal.

Compare Writing Champions Grant

The Compare Writing Champions Grant is a new BAICE funding scheme intended to support ‘writing champions’ who have attended a BAICE/Compare Writers’ workshop or symposium and who could implement academic writing activities to support colleagues’ development in their own institutions.

Applicants are invited to develop a proposal for an initiative that will be led/facilitated by a ‘writing champion’ in their institution which connects with the aims of the BAICE/Compare Writers’ programme, particularly in relation to developing and implementing strategies to support new writers’ to successfully write and publish academic research articles.
