Motivated by the University’s internationalisation strategy, and forming part of the Dean’s International Engagement Initiative for the School of Life and Medical Sciences, three small (£250) travel and subsistence bursaries are being offered to students in the School.
The bursaries are open to undergraduate students in their first and second year of study in the School of Life and Medical Sciences. The bursaries are designed to encourage and facilitate engagement with short-term study or work abroad placement opportunities, such as those offered by the British Council. However, students are free to identify and engage with opportunities outside those run by the British Council. However, please note that these bursaries are not designed to facilitate conference attendance.
To apply, applicants must submit a statement that answers the following two questions:
- Why are you applying to the Scheme?
- How will an award benefit your development? Students must reference the University’s graduate attributes in their answer.
Statements should be submit by e-mail to: Dr James Jenkins, Associate Dean International, School of Life and Medical Sciences. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org. The closing date for applications is noon on Monday 30th January 2017. Successful applicants will be informed of the outcome of their application by Tuesday 28th February 2017, with such applicant having to submit a written summary of their study abroad/work placement by September 1st 2017.
