BIMDG Educational Grant Application Form

BIMDG Studentships 2020

Educational Grants



Educational grants are intended to assist members of the BIMDG to attend educational meetings and conferences in the field of inborn errors of metabolism or closely allied sciences.

Eligibility Criteria

Educational grants are open to all the membership regardless of position or seniority providing that the individual has been a member of the society for at least two years and has paid their subscriptions.


The British Inherited Metabolic Disease Group (BIMDG) will consider supporting students to gain valuable experience in the area of inherited metabolic disease.

A stipend of 200 pounds a week, for a maximum of eight weeks, is available. It is anticipated that a maximum of two studentships will be awarded.  The projects must be innovative and provide some useful information to the wider IMD community, or the implementation of novel techniques.

Applications are invited to all disciplines (laboratory, nurses, dietitians, clinicians etc.) relevant to patients with inherited metabolic conditions.

Students will need to identify a supervisor or vice versa.

Potential supervisors should apply by submitting a one page (A4) project proposal that includes background, aims and approach to be employed.  A statement of how the project will benefit patients with inherited metabolic disorders should be included.

A CV of the prospective student must accompany the proposal.

Please e-mail your application by 13th March 2020.

The successful group/s will be expected to give a presentation of their work at the BIMDG Annual Symposium and will also be required to write a short written article for the BIMDG Bulletin.
