The scholarship is of the value of about £4,000 and may be held with another award. This scholarship is offered in every second year. We encourage candidates to submit findings for publication (at least as a research letter) in a peer reviewed journal.
Candidates must either hold the Degrees of Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery of the University of Oxford or have passed the First Examination for the Degree of Bachelor of Medicine of the University and hold a medical degree of another British university qualifying them to practise medicine.
Candidates are required to submit:
- A letter of application outlining why they wish to apply for the scholarship and details of their proposed period of study, including an undertaking that, if elected, they will travel abroad for a period of at least one month for the purpose of clinical study or research in medicine;
- An estimate of the costs of the proposed period of clinical study or research;
- A statement of their academic record/CV;
- Two testimonials in support of the candidate/application.
The elected scholar will be required to complete their period of travel within twelve months from the date of election, and within a reasonable period thereafter to submit to the Secretary of the Medical School for the approval of the electors a detailed report of his or her tenure of the scholarship. As we wish to encourage scholarship holders to continue to do research, findings should be submitted for publication.
Payment of nine-tenths of the scholarship will be made shortly before the period of travel, and the remaining one-tenth following the approval of the report.
Applications should be sent to Laura Morgan, Medical School Office, Academic Centre, Level 2, John Radcliffe Hospital, Headington, Oxford, OX3 9DU.
E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org. Electronic submission by email is preferred.
The closing date for applications will be 12 April 2024.
