The John Snow Anaesthesia Intercalated Awards 2017


The deadline for the 2017 round of John Snow Anaesthesia Intercalated Awards was 5 pm on Friday 31 March 2017.

Awards are being offered by the Association of Anaesthetists of Great Britain & Ireland (AAGBI)/Anaesthesia, the British Journal of Anaesthesia (BJA)/Royal College of Anaesthetists (RCoA), and the Neuroanaesthesia & Critical Care Society of Great Britain and Ireland (NACCSGBI).

Full submission details are included in the application form below.

We would like to particularly encourage applications from students at institutions in Wales and Ireland (both RoI and NI).

Once the deadline has passed all received applications will be sent for review, and we will endeavour to contact all applicants and their supervisors by the end of May 2017.

  • The scheme has been designed to encourage medical student interest in anaesthesia and its related disciplines
  • The AAGBI/Anaesthesia and BJA/RCoA are offering awards of £2,000
  • NACCSGBI is offering one award of £1,000
  • Each institution can submit a maximum of four applications so some coordination between supervisors will be required
  • Awards go to the student and not the supervisor/institution and are meant to contribute to living costs. Project running costs will be funded by the supervisor/institution
  • The awards are intended for students who are studying as part of a programme of work leading towards a registered medical qualification. Therefore students of intercalated Bachelors or Masters degrees are eligible to apply. Applications from students undertaking either programme of study will be reviewed in parallel.
  • Assessment criteria: (1) quality of the student, (2) quality of the research project and (3) supervisor and teaching environment. We do not typically provide detailed feedback to applicants.
  • Applications should be submitted for projects that have not yet commenced and applicants may only apply for one funding stream
  • Funding should be acknowledged in any publications (i.e. Funded by AAGBI/Anaesthesia, BJA/RCoA, or NACCSGBI via the NIAA as indicated in the award letter) and a final report will be required
  • Depending on uptake, intercalaters may be asked to present their work at a meeting.

    These awards are annual, so if your department misses the deadline for 2017 please do consider applying again next year.
