Applications will open in March and November and will be considered by BACA council. Applicants will be informed of the success of their application within 8 weeks of the deadline of the applications. Successful applicants will be required to complete data collection and analysis within two years of receiving this award.
- Within six months of receiving the award, awardees will be expected to present their preliminary data/findings, as an oral presentation, at the next BACA summer/winter meeting.
- At one year of receiving the award, awardees will be expected to submit a written progress report.
- On completion of the work, the applicant is expected to produce and submit a written report, in the style of a scientific paper, to the UK editor of Clinical Anatomy. Constructive feedback will be provided on the written report. Submission of work to the UK editor of Clinical Anatomy does not indicate that the work will automatically be eligible for publication in the association journal.
The successful applicant will be awarded one third of the total scholarship amount up front. A further third will be awarded on submission of the progress report (at 1 year). The remaining monies will be awarded to the applicant on submission of the final written report. Part of the monies may be spent on travel/accommodation and conference fees. Scholarship recipients will not normally be allowed to apply for future BACA scholarships within a successive year.

- A maximum of £1000 awards (more suited to smaller projects such as a summer student projects or pilot studies)
