Core-Dr Falk Essay Prize

Core-Dr Falk 2018 Essay Prize Application Form

Dr Falk Pharma and Core invite applications for a £1,000 prize for the best essay on research in an area relevant to gastroenterology or hepatology that was personally undertaken by medical students who were on an intercalated BSc/MRes/MSc/MPH/MBPhD course during the previous academic year (2016-17). PhD students should note that they may apply for the medical student bursary only once during their three-year studentship and that they may apply for this essay prize when their PhD has been completed. The application must be written as an essay, not as a paper/project report.

Applications should be completed through the form below. A PDF version of your application will be sent to your email address after you submit the form (check your spam/junk folder if you have not received it). Please print this off, obtain all relevant signatures and email a scanned signed full application to research@corecharity.org.uk by 2 March 2018, 5pm. The application will only be considered complete once we receive the signed version. Applications received after this time will not be considered.

Please do not exceed the word limits set in the application form and ensure all rich text formatted sections use 11 size font.
