The BDIAP offers up to 5 grants a year to support medical undergraduates undertaking a BSc, MSc or equivalent in pathology and which has a practical laboratory component
Such intercalated degrees should be undertaken in departments of histopathology, cellular pathology or cytopathology in universities, NHS laboratories or research institutes in the UK. The project component of the degree should be tissue-based using techniques such as morphology, immunohistochemistry, and tissue-based molecular testing. 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 grant will normally be up to a maximum of £15,000 pounds sterling. At those medical schools where intercalation is mandatory (Imperial, Oxford, Cambridge, UCL) the BDIAP will offer two grants of £3,000.
Applications are considered once a year. Applications must be submitted by 25th May 2018 and should be supported by a member of the BDIAP. Demand for the awards is highly competitive. Applications will be judged on the past performance of the applicant, the commitment to pathology and the standard of writing in the application.
All applications will be reviewed by the Education and IT subcommittee and the outcome will be communicated to all candidates by the end of July 2018.
