Kent Cancer Trust Scholarship Scheme
Scholarship Name Kent Cancer Trust Scholarship Scheme
Academic Year 2020
Scholarship amount Up to £1,000
Nationality Any
Scholarship Deadline 12 June 2020

Up to £1,000

Due to generous support from the Kent Cancer Trust the School of Biosciences at the University of Kent has a modest scholarship fund. The value of each award will depend on the number and quality of application received, but it is anticipated that the maximum value will be £1,000.

Criteria

In order to be eligible for this scholarship fund, candidates must:

  • Have accepted an offer for the MSc Cancer Biology, or and MSc by research on a cancer-related research project, at the University of Kent at the point of application
  • Have, or expect to obtain, a minimum Upper Second Class Honours degree or equivalent
  • Commence study in September 2020; scholarship awards cannot be deferred

Scholarship holders would be expected to undertake reasonable duties to support the objectives of Kent Cancer Trust in its aim to promote, support and fund translational research into cancer. The specific roles that the Trust is interested in for 2020/21 are outlined below; you should relate to one or more of these roles in your application. These requirements can be undertaken in scholar's own time and are anticipated to require an hour per week on average, although some weeks will require a little more activity. 

Roles for Kent Cancer Trust Scholars
Social Media
Kent Cancer Trust has social media channels and we would like a scholar to take a lead on maintaining and developing the Trust’s social media presence. In your application, outline your experience of this type of activity, and/or what you might do to promote the Kent Cancer Trust with these channels with appropriate, creative content and audience growth strategies.
Newsletter
The Kent Cancer Trust has periodic newsletters which gather together news items and relevant stories. We would expect a Scholar to take a lead on the generation of a newsletter, writing or commissioning content, and editing a final version. In your application, outline your experience of this type of activity, and/or what you might include as content to promote the Trust’s fundraising.
Engagement with clinical community
The Kent Cancer Trust focuses on translational research and seeks to engage the clinical community. A focus for the coming year will be to pro-actively target clinicians to see whether there are any requirements for funding support to pump-prime projects that will benefit patients in Kent. The Trust would like a scholar to focus on this activity, researching relevant clinical groups and contacting them to make them aware of funding opportunities. If you have experience of this kind of activity, please outline it in your application.

How to apply

In order to be considered for a Kent Cancer Trust Scholarship, applicants should submit the following:
1. A statement (250 words maximum) of how Kent Cancer Trust Scholarship would benefit you in your academic study and chosen career, and
2. A statement (500 words) that outlines how holding a Kent Cancer Trust Scholarship would benefit the Trust, and how you would assist the Trust in its work, and ideas for fundraising activities that you would like to participate in. Please also take note of roles 1-3 below in writing this section; these are roles that the Trust are particularly keen for Scholars to lead on.
