Follow these steps to apply:
- Email us at [email protected] with the following documents and information:
- Your resume/CV, including undergraduate transcripts/grades
- Written confirmation from a recognised university of enrolment or acceptance to a life science-related degree progra
- An original article of between 1000 and 2000 words written by you on a topical life-science subject, for example “The Future Application of Stem Cell Technologies in Neuroscience Research“. See the ‘article guidelines’ below for more information about what we are looking for.
- The deadline for the 2016/17 scholarship is 1st July 2016!
The submitted article can be based on primary research, however it should not be an already published piece of work (to avoid copyright issues) and it should not be a project proposal. It should be something that would suit a science blog, so an engaging editorial / review-type piece with figures/images is favourable. It should be at least 1000 words long. If it is newsworthy or relating to something currently in the popular press it may appeal to a wider group of people.
