Skills Development Award

We have evolved the BSI career grant offering to ensure we provide relevant careers-enhancing support to more members. This means we are no longer accepting applications to the BSI Skills Development Award (previously named BSI Summer Placement Award). However, we will continue to offer financial support to BSI members looking to undertake a formal immunology-related placement in a selected laboratory through our new grant schemes. 

  • Medical students wishing to take on an immunology placement for their medical elective, can apply for the BSI Medical Elective Grant. This is the perfect opportunity for students to develop new skills and see learning applied in real situations.
  • Postgraduate students (MSc & PhD) wishing to take on a placement in a selected laboratory, can apply for the BSI Career Enhancing Grant. This grant scheme offers flexible financial support for a wide range of activities focussing on career progression.
