Overview:

The Visiting Lecturer Bursary Scheme allows international or British scientists of repute to visit clinical departments or laboratories in the United Kingdom to share information, techniques and experiences. The Guarantors of Brain have made available up to two bursaries per annum. Bursaries will be awarded annually in competition to the host department. Visiting Lecturers are expected to spend five working days participating in daily activities of the host laboratory or department and in giving informal seminars as well as a ‘Brain Lecture’ to which outsiders will be invited.

These are training bursaries with a duration of up to 6 months. Each Bursary will include an economy class return airfare, the cost of lodging for six nights and an honorarium of £1000 (max £5K).
