Prizes and awards
These are to assist undergraduate students in gaining research experience by working in a research environment. A stipend is offered for a period of study of up to ten weeks, together with a sum for the host department consumables.
The student will normally be an undergraduate following a course in endocrinology or a related life science subject. Students will normally take up the award during the summer vacation before their final year. Applicants in their final year will be asked to fully explain how they would benefit from this award by email to email@example.com
Only one application per host supervisor will be accepted per year. Students should check with their intended host supervisor before applying. Applications will be marked by the Grants Panel.
Frequency: Once a year
£185/week up to a maximum of £1850 per grant for a period of up to 10 weeks plus up to £1000 for consumables. (The Society will support overseas applications up to the same value, but will not cover any additional travel expenses).
Applications are invited from students whose intended host supervisor is a Society member. Where the host supervisor is a Full Member, membership must have been held for a minimum of one year. It is anticipated that the host supervisor will normally be an academic or academic-related staff member. If not, a letter of support is required from the principal investigator or clinical team leader. The host supervisor will be required to submit a report at the end of the studentship detailing the success of the student and the progress of the project.
Below is a summary of the guidelines that markers use in the selection process.
