Medical student elective bursaries open to applicants

The Renal Association awards eight bursaries each year to medical students who are planning to undertake electives which include a significant renal component, either clinical or research. The eight successful applicants will receive a bursary of £250 (each) and we require an essay of around 750 words describing your experience, and how the elective added value to your work. We would like to receive the report within 3 months of your return from the elective, please provide this in PDF format.

Applications open 1 December each year and close 6 weeks later on the 12 January.

To apply please complete and return the application form to the secretariat at renal@renal.org along with a copy of your CV. Please provide both documents in PDF format.

If you have any queries please contact the secretariat.
