Educational Fellowships

These Fellowships are for BDIAP members and are intended to assist study in other laboratories, in the UK or overseas. The aim is that the recipient of a Fellowship should learn about specialist pathological techniques that are not available at their own institution and which have a major educational component. The maximum value of one Fellowship is £5,000. Applications should be made using this downloadable form which should be completed, signed and emailed as a scanned PDF document to Carol Harris, the BDIAP Administrator

Regulations for the Fellowships:

1. The British Division of the IAP has established Fellowships for members of the BDIAP, including Trainee members, to enable them to travel to other institutions to learn pathological techniques, especially if the work has a major educational component. Council of the BDIAP will support one such fellowship per year.

2. BDIAP Educational Fellowships are available for a period of study up to twelve months. It will be seen as an advantage if the fellowship is for an additional stipend and/or travel expenses to augment salary paid by the present employer.

3. A maximum sum of £5,000 pounds sterling will be allocated to any one person but applications for smaller sums are welcomed.

4. The appropriate application forms, obtainable from the Administrative Secretary or the BDIAP Website, must be used. Any application exceeding 9 pages will not be processed. The names of two referees will be required, together with a statement from the Head of the Department where the applicant proposes to work indicating acceptance of the candidate for the period of study.

6. After its award, a Fellowship must be taken up within the following twelve months. A short report should be sent to the Administrator of the BDIAP for the Council’s information. This will assist in assessing future awards.
