Education Scholarships, what are they?


The Education Scholarships are opportunities for medicine, vet, dentist and psychology students to undertake a one year project with Medic Mentor. Scholarship projects range from coordinating our national conferences to coordinating our school societies networks and producing our books.
Scholars will form part of either the Medicine Education Directorate or the Specialties Education Directorate. Each scholar will receive project supervision and support from an assigned Medi (a current practicing professional in their specialty.) All projects and the Education Directorates are overseen by the Director of Education. Scholars and their Medi will meet regularly with the Medic Mentor Exec team.

Scholars also receive professional development and portfolio support throughout the year and a certificate and reference on completion of their projects.

The scholarship programme runs from December 2017 to December 2018. There are 21 scholarships available.

  • Students currently studying Medicine, Dentistry, Veterinary Medicine or Psychology at university.
  • Medical students taking their intercalated year.
  • Students who are in their final year (graduating in July 2017) will be considered
  • Students who have previously held a Medic Mentor scholarship may apply Some scholarships will have specific requirements which must also be adhered to.
