BDIAP student elective scholarships for undergraduate election or vacation studies in histopathology or related areas

The BDIAP is offering a total of 15 scholarships a year to undergraduate students of medicine to enable them to work for elective or vacation periods in departments of histopathology, cellular pathology or cytopathology in universities, NHS laboratories or research institutes in the UK or overseas. Proposals for work on research projects in histopathology or for acquisition of experience in diagnostic departments are eligible for consideration. It is a condition of the award that the successful candidate will submit a report on the work undertaken within 3 months of completion of the project.

The scholarship will normally be for £200 per week up to a maximum of 8 weeks (and thus up to a maximum of £1600 pounds Sterling).

Applications will be considered at any time of the year. The applications are assessed by the Education and IT subcommittee and applicants will be informed of the result within 6 weeks of receipt of their application.

To apply for this funding please complete this downloadable form below and then send a scanned PDF copy of the completed and signed form to Sam Kiely, Education and Divisional Manager at least 6 weeks before the proposed start of your elective period.
