Please note that our Autumn 2020 events have been cancelled but we hope to run future events in 2021


We are delighted to announce our new bursaries to support BSH members who are Specialist Trainees' attendance at our educational events throughout 2020. Please note that these bursaries are a pilot programme for 2020, and are not for our Annual Scientific Meeting, as it has separate funding available through our Annual Scientific Meeting Scholarships

Grant Details

Bursaries are available for each BSH educational event except the ASM and are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis until the fund for that event is depleted.

Successful applicants will have their expenses reimbursed after the event, see "What the scholarship covers" for more information.

There is no fixed deadline; bursaries are available for each 2020 event from the date registration opens until the fund is depleted. We aim to update event descriptions within a few working days of funding depletion; we thank you for your understanding of this potential delay. Applications received after all funding has been allocated will be added to a waiting list in case of application withdrawals.

We announce registration for our events via our members' e-bulletin, through social media and our events e-bulletin - you can sign up for our e-bulletin on your MyBSH
