Applications are invited for the 2014 George Herbert Hunt Travelling Scholarship to support travel abroad for clinical study or research.

The scholarship is of the value of about £3,000 and may be held with another award.  This scholarship is offered in every second year.

Candidates should either have been admitted to the Degree of Bachelor of Medicine 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 him or her to practise medicine.  Current medical students are not eligible to apply; an award can only be made to a medical graduate who fulfils the above criteria.

Candidates are required to submit with their applications a statement of their academic record together with testimonials, and 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. 

In making the award, preference will be given to candidates who intend to engage in the practice of their profession either as surgeons or as general practitioners.

The scholar will be required to complete his or her 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.  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.  The election will be made on 9 April 2014.

Applications should be sent to Mrs Laura Morgan, Medical School Office, Academic Centre, Level 2, John Radcliffe Hospital, Headington, Oxford, OX3 9DU by 21 February 2014.
