The Association of Surgeons in Training (ASiT) is providing eight bursaries, each worth £1000 annually, to support ASiT members undertaking the Edinburgh ChM’s in General Surgery, Trauma and Orthopaedics, Urology, Endovascular and Vascular Surgery.
For more information on the ASiT-ESSQ bursaries, please see the most recent RCSEd Surgeons News article on this: https://www.rcsed.ac.uk/news-public-affairs/surgeons-news/june-2019
To be eligible you must provide:
A personal statement of no more than 200 words confirming that you are continuing your learning in asupervised clinical environment and explaining why you consider yourself to be a worthy recipient of an ASiT bursary, and specifically any financial limitations you currently face.
Curriculum Vitae (no more than 2 pages)
The University Username (UUN) assigned to you when you made your online application for your 2017 ESSQ programme (e.g. s171234).
Your current ASiT membership number.
Applicants should already have been offered a place on one of the ChM programmes, and should have firmly accepted that offer or be intending to do so. Students already on the programme and applicants who hold full sponsorships are not eligible for the scholarship. Selectors reserve the right to invoke the criterion on academic merit. If an applicant is successful in being awarded a scholarship, but subsequently declines their offer of admission on the programme, the award of the scholarship will be withdrawn and awarded to another applicant. An award may be withdrawn if a student fails to meet the academic standards set by the University of Edinburgh.
Six awards are available and will be repeated annually to support the student assuming academic performance is acceptable.
