The College awards up to 10 College Travelling Fellowships each year, to encourage the further education of younger Fellows and Members. These scholarships are intended to help our members travel to centres of excellence to gain invaluable experience.

These awards will also support a variety of other learning opportunities including taster weeks for junior doctors.

At least four scholarships each year will be allocated to Fellows and Members from overseas to apply for assistance to visit centres in the UK, provided that the applicants meet the other requirements for an award.

Scholarships are not intended to fund travel to meetings or to pay for training in the home country, which would normally be considered the responsibility of the employing authority. However, the Scholarship Committee will consider travel to a centre of excellence within the UK.

Funds provided should be used for travel and subsistence of the Member or Fellow and not family members. Awards are not expected to cover salary costs. Appropriate arrangements for study leave and continuation of salary must be made with the applicant′s employing authority.

Awards are limited to a maximum of £2,000 each and are therefore most suited to candidates wishing to visit overseas centres for between two and six weeks. The Scholarship Committee may consider a candidate who has obtained funds elsewhere but in most cases it is likely that we will be the sole sponsor.

Download and complete the application form and return the completed form to the address given. Make sure to include in your application:

  • A letter of support from the your supervisor
  • Confirmation from the centre you plan to visit that you will be welcome.

Successful applicants are required to submit a report within two months of completing the scholarship. Reports may be published here on the website and are retained in the College library.
