I would like to draw your attention to the new round of awards and bursaries which are now open for application closing on 30th September 2015 at 5 pm.
Applications are welcomed from medical, nurse and paramedical BSGE members. Bursaries are available to support educational courses relevant to Gynaecological Endoscopy. Examples of such would include Nurse and GP hysteroscopy courses, Endoscopic MSc courses & Nurse endoscopic surgical assistant courses.

Travel awards are available to enable medics to visit other centres of excellence, either UK or overseas. There is a category for both consultants/SAS, trainees, GP’s, nurses and paramedics.

I should point out that several applications were not considered last year simply because of failure to adhere to the rules of application. The common problems were late submission, not complying with the CV requirements (maximum 2 pages) and not supplying relevant references supporting the application. Over 90% of the applications were received in the last 48 hours. If you submit your application early we can look over them and send back for correction and reapplication where necessary.

There were no applications for the GP & Paramedic fellowships last year and applications across the board were sparse. If you have a well organised and well thought out application, you are very likely to succeed.

The details of all the awards and bursaries are available on the BSGE website, last year BSGE awarded over 20,000 pounds.

Go on. Apply. You are very likely to succeed.
