This pilot programme supports those undertaking short-term educational UK-to-LMIC or LMIC-to-UK trips to gain experience in a different field or to learn new research, and/or to help establish and strengthen international links.

It is highly desirable that these educational visits are in the framework of a well-defined institutional link and/or training programme within the overseas institution.

This scholarship is governed jointly by the BSH Scientific and Publications Committee and our Global Haematology Special Interest Group (SIG). The SIG is open to all of those with an interest in haematology issues in Low and Middle Income Countries - find out more and join the Global Haematology SIG.

Please note that this is a pilot programme, subsequent scholarship availability will be subject to the pilot's success.
