RCP medical student elective bursaries

Up to 12 grants of £500 each are available each year to undergraduate medical students at UK universities who will be undertaking a medical elective overseas.


Applications, which can be for an elective that is linked to any medical specialty, must be made before the start of the project/elective period. Please note that the primary criteria for assessment are academic excellence and financial need, so ensure that your application addresses each of these criteria. 


Applicants must be medical student members of the RCP of at least six months standing prior to the application deadline. More info on student membership here.
