Our Global Haematology Scholarship provides financial support for those undertaking short-term UK-to-LMIC and LMIC-to-UK trips for educational purposes.

Other visits or work, including clinical work, research and leisure activities, are not covered under this scholarship.

Our support exclusively covers the educational goals stated in your application.

Our support will only cover flights, accommodation and subsistence. Please note that alcohol costs cannot be claimed as subsistence.
We will ask you to confirm the details of your flight and accommodation, which we will pay for on your behalf. In exceptional circumstances where flights and accommodation have already been paid for by the individual, BSH may reimburse them on provision of proof of payment. Subsistence will be provided on a per diem basis in line with the gov.uk recommended rates, up to a maximum of six weeks. 

You are responsible for complying with the highest standards of integrity in your work.  If your work supported by our grant becomes subject to an investigation of scientific misconduct, you must inform us immediately and we may then suspend funding.  If academic fraud is found in the publication of your research supported by us, you must ensure that appropriate errata or restrictions are published.

You are fully responsible for the management, conduct and control of all research work funded by the grant. We are not liable, except for death or personal injury arising from our negligence or from our fraud, to any third party for any matter arising in connection with the work funded by our grant and the publication of the results thereof.

You are responsible for ensuring that any actions undertaken by you or those associated with your educational visit as part of the scholarship are compliant with the Charity Commission’s safeguarding guidance, particularly in regard to vulnerable adults or children.

We encourage the promotion of our organisation, but you must obtain our explicit written consent each time you wish to make any statements about, or references in any documents or other medium to, our grant support or our organisation or use our name and logo.

Your photo and a copy of your report may be published in our communications materials, including our website and social media platforms. We will proofread and make any minor grammar or spelling corrections as required. If edits beyond minor corrections are required, we will contact you for approval. You may request that we do not publish confidential information or withdraw your consent for publication at any time.

You are responsible for ensuring that the information you supply as part of your application is correct and up-to-date. Should you provide fraudulent information, your application may be invalidated and we may require that your return your funding.

You may be asked to present your work at BSH meetings, such as the Annual Scientific Meeting, in order to promote your research and the BSH grant programme.
