Friends of the Cancer Centre Scholarships 2021

Wednesday, 1 September 2021

We are delighted to announce that our scholarships programme for 2021 is now open for applications. Scholarships are available to fund up to £2000 towards a training or educational course, or academic or training related travel.

 

Three scholarships are available:

  • The Dr Gary McGowan Scholarship – open to all oncology trainees
  • The Pamela Lutton Scholarship – open to all therapy radiographers
  • The Pearl Ewing Scholarship – open to all healthcare professionals working across cancer services

 

The scholarships provide funding for cancer services staff to enhance and improve their skills, helping them both to further their own careers, and provide greater benefit for local people affected by cancer. Applications which demonstrate the greatest potential benefit for cancer patients will be looked upon most favourably by the judging panel.

 

Our scholarships have all been named and dedicated to late friends and colleagues in the Northern Ireland Cancer Centre, who themselves always strived for professional excellence for the good of local cancer patients. 

 

To apply for any of the scholarships above, please send your CV and a covering letter, describing in 500 words or less, the training or educational course you are interested in undertaking and why you should be awarded the scholarship.

Applications can be emailed to lauren.mcroberts@belfasttrust.hscni.net

 

Informal queries can be submitted to joe.osullivan@qub.ac.uk
