Eight fully funded and ten part funded bursaries have been released for the 2017/2018 academic year to support pre-university students develop scientific and clinical skills.
Who Can Apply
Bursaries are awarded to Y12-Y13 students who would not otherwise be able to afford to attend a BioGrad course. Bursaries are managed by staff members at our partner schools as we require a school representative to confirm the pupil premium status of all applicants. We are specifically seeking students who hope to pursue a career in science or medicine and want to use the course to further these aspirations.
