Funding opportunity for medical students - Intercalated Degrees

Our intercalated degree call provides an opportunity for undergraduate medical students to take a year away from normal degree studies, to carry out a short research project focusing on the kidney. This will provide a second degree (BSc) in addition to the medical degree.

  • Funding available: £5,000 to undergraduate medical students undertaking research that is directly relevant to the kidney and kidney disease as part of an intercalated degree.
  • Funding period: one year
  • Start date: awards are required to commence by October 2020 (academic year 2020/21)
  • Application deadline: Wednesday 15 April 2020
  • Funding decision: May 2020

Additional information

Tutors should ensure that they only support suitable students.

Supervisors may only supervise up to two student applications, with each being for a different project.

All applicants must be resident and an undergraduate at a UK university, where the intercalated year must also take place.

Applications will not be eligible from students whose medical degree automatically includes an intercalation year. We welcome applications from medical students who, upon applying to another university, decide to undertake intercalation (iBSc) partway through their medical degree. The website may be helpful to prospective applicants.

Successful applicants also offered awards from other bodies will be expected to accept one award only (although special consideration will be given to hardship bursaries or awards purely for consumable items of expenditure, on an individual and exceptional basis).
