The College is delighted to announce a new RCPath/Specialist Society Medical Elective small grant scheme, launched to mark the College’s Diamond Jubilee in 2022.

The scheme is joint funded by the College and partner societies from the different disciplines and will offer small grants of value up to £1,000.

The grants will help to support undergraduate medical and veterinary students who wish to undertake electives in pathology disciplines.  

Electives may be clinical or research-based and may be undertaken in any part of the world.

A minimum of £500 must be used for student travel and subsistence with the remaining amount being spent flexibly for project-related costs such as consumables, or for student costs, as appropriate for the project.

Applications for this year are now open.

The closing date is Friday 09 September 2022. Successful candidates will be informed in October 2022.
