Thanks to generous contributions from our donors, including Margaret Witt, Alban Barros D’Sa and the Worshipful Company of Needlemakers, we are able to offer a range of Education Awards every year. Awards are open to applications from all RCS England affiliates, associates, members and fellows and to non-members who are applying for ad eundem (honorary) RCS England membership.
Winning an award gives you a sum of money to spend on attending an RCS England course in the Bjorn Saven Centre for Surgical Education or in some cases PGCert in Surgery modules. Take a look at the available awards, as well as our Education Awards FAQs listed below.
We are currently reviewing the awards process to increase their accessibility. We anticipate that there will be a single application process in the future and the specific bursaries will be allocated to the top applicants after the judging process, depending on the specific courses requested. Our plans are to run the first iteration of this new format in early 2024 but please review this page frequently for further details as they are developed or follow one of the RCS England social media profiles where updates will be posted.
We also offer a range of non-educational fellowships, awards and grants to medical students, trainees and consultants.
