What is the Student Diversity Fund?
The SDF is a fund set up by Medic Mentor to provide free places for students and parents from low-income backgrounds to attend National Healthcare Weekend events. Teachers can also access this fund to attend for free.
What is the criteria for the Student Diversity Fund?
To apply for free places, students need to meet only 1 of the eligibility criteria:
1. Be in receipt of free school meals or
2. Have a combined family income of less than £25,000
We do not take into account grades, school, postcode, year of study or whether you are the first person in your family to attend university.
If you meet one of the above criteria then you are eligible to apply for free places for yourself and your parents to attend National Healthcare Weekend via the SDF.
How to access free places for National Healthcare Weekend:
If you are a student that meets 1 of the 2 eligibility criteria, the first step is to complete the online form below.
The second step is to ask a Teacher at your school to email (firstname.lastname@example.org) to confirm that you are a student attending the school and that you meet the eligibility criteria. Once we have received the confirmation from your Teacher, we will consider your application for the free places.
As places are limited, free places are awarded based on a selection process. Therefore, please take your time to complete this application form to the best of your ability. Successful candidates will be contacted once confirmation from your teacher has been received.
If you are a Teacher, wanting to attend National Healthcare Weekend, please contact our Careers and Widening Participation Officer, Miss Elizabeth Bailey. Her email address is email@example.com.
