Overview

Our education bursary to support colleagues in low and middle-income countries is open to all member and non-member health professionals, providing the opportunity to secure up to £200 of funding towards one of our education courses or conferences.

Applications open in January 2022.

These bursaries are available to both members and non-members to help fund attendance at any BSR and BSR-accredited educational events in 2022.

Applications are open for the entire year. A full list of courses and conferences can be found on the Events and Learning homepage.

Applicant information

Who can apply?

  • This bursary is open to members and non-members, and to all professional roles

How to apply

You must:

  • Submit an application form, which asks about the conference or course you would like to attend, your suitability for the bursary, how you'd use the experience to enhance your professional knowledge (max 200 words), whether you have a BSR membership and;

  • Submit a two-page CV (if you submit a CV longer than this, only the first two pages will be sent to the reviewing panel)

Applications are judged anonymously by a nominated panel. Judges reach a consensus on the applications and bursaries are awarded to the applicants thought to benefit most.

If your application is successful, you'll receive up to £200 to cover registration fees.

Further information

As this application round covers all our courses and conferences for 2022, you may be applying for a bursary to support your funding before or after attending an event.

Due to this, please book your place on the course/conference you wish to attend, as you may not be successful until after registration has closed. You can still apply for a bursary for an event that you have already attended.

Bursary money is reimbursed up to three weeks after receiving the claim. Claims must be made within three months of bursary being awarded; any claims received after this are not reimbursed.

You may apply for more than one bursary, but if successful, you're ineligible for further bursaries for two years from the start date of your course/event.

If awarded a bursary, you'll be given an expenses claim form to complete and return. Bursaries are a retrospective reimbursement so this isn't issued until after the course/conference.

If you have any questions or require further information, contact the education team.
