The College is delighted to announce a new scholarship opportunity for members to travel abroad to learn from high performing organisations and attend an international conference. The College is very grateful to Zoll for their generous sponsorship of the award.
Awarding criteria for the International Zoll Scholarship:
- Full member of the College of Paramedics
- Full College membership of at least one calendar year prior to application
- Complete and submit the application form and CV by the closing date (CV needs to reflect, experience as a paramedic, professional work and activity. academic achievement and aspirations, voluntary/charity/hobbies/outside interests and any research or publications they have been involved in).
Awards of up to £2,500 are made in May and September each year. Award money is to pay for a member to visit an international conference and observe high performing pre-hospital organisations for a period of up to two weeks. The international conference and country are set by the College of Paramedics. Members awarded the prize can negotiate their own observation organisation(s) with the agreement of the College.
The individual awarded the scholarship is expected to collect the award in person (Expenses can be claimed for this according to the Colleges expenses policy). They will also be expected to write up their experience for publication in Paramedic INSIGHT.
