The BDIAP is offering up to five grants per year to support undergraduates undertaking a BSc, or equivalent (e.g. MSc), in Histopathology as part of their undergraduate career.
Such a BSc will normally be undertaken in departments of Histopathology, Cellular Pathology or Cytopathology in universities, medical schools, NHS laboratories or research institutes in the United Kingdom or overseas, although the Council of the BDIAP will consider other suitable and appropriate applications. Proposals for work on research projects in pathology or for acquisition of experience in diagnostic departments are eligible for consideration. Applicants MUST demonstrate a substantive component of histopathology to their project. It is a condition of the award that the successful candidate will submit a report on the work undertaken within three months of completion of the project.
The grant will normally be for up to a maximum of £15,000.00 pounds sterling. At those medical schools where intercalation is mandatory (Imperial, Oxford, Cambridge, UCL), the BDIAP will offer two grants of £3,000.
The closing date for all applications is Fri 25th May 2018. Applications after the deadline will not be considered.
