The BDIAP offers up to five grants per year to support undergraduates undertaking a BSc, or equivalent, in Pathology 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. Applications, including proposals for work on research projects in pathology, should be submitted by the end of May 2015 and will be considered by the education and IT subcommittee of the BDIAP. The grant will normally be for a maximum of £15,000 pounds sterling and is primarily to support living expenses and university fees during the year of study rather than bench fees.
At those medical schools where intercalation is mandatory (Imperial, Oxford, Cambridge and UCL), the BDIAP will offer two grants of £3,000 each.
