These Fellowships are for BDIAP Member Country 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 BDIAP is offering a total of 3 fellowships a year. 

The maximum value of one Fellowship is £5,000. Applications can be made at any time but must be submitted a minimum of 8 weeks before the proposed visit to allow time for the Innovation Subcommittee to assess the application.
