The Barbers' Company Clinical Nursing Scholarship

The Barbers' Company Clinical Nursing Scholarship is to enable nurses/midwives making a career in clinical practice to undertake further education. The Scholarship of up to £10, 000 is offered for the fees or subsistence of a nurse/midwife normally undertaking a Masters or PhD programme relevant to nursing/midwifery in an academic department in the United Kingdom.

The amount of funding from the Scholarship is normally divided between several applicants. The award is specifically intended for nurses in, or planning to return to, clinical practice.

The successful candidate(s) will be expected to submit a report on their work at the end of the year in which the Scholarship is awarded, and may be asked to share some aspect of their work at a Scholarship Seminar.
