About Scholarship: RCPE Scholarships aim to enable talented doctors to undertake the joint University of Edinburgh/RCPE RCPEMSc in Internal Medicine, part-time, by distance learning. For entry in September 2013 seven scholarships are available. One full scholarship for a doctor who is a resident citizen of an eligible Sub-Saharan African country. Four scholarships where the College will pay 75% of your tuition fees each year for doctors who are resident citizens of a DfID priority country.
RCPE reserves the right to adjust award of scholarships if we do not receive applications from suitably qualified candidates for all scholarships listed. The scholarships will be paid directly to the University of Edinburgh Tuition Fees department, at the start of each academic year. Recipients of all scholarships are expected to obtain passes at Masters level (50%) each year in order to qualify for the next year of funding.
Students who pass at 50% or higher and wish to defer for a year before resuming their studies will be able to defer the subsequent years of the scholarship at the College’s discretion. Alternatively, they may conclude their studies with the Certificate (after one year) or Diploma (after 2 years). Students who are funded at any point of the course by a sponsor (i.e. have their tuition fees paid by an employer, industry or government sponsor, charity or third-party organisation) are not eligible to apply. Scholarship recipients must advise the RCPE if at any time you obtain funding from another source and stop being self-funding. In such cases the RCPE scholarship will be offered to another student, who is self-funding.
Scholarship recipients will be required to submit an end-of-programme report at the conclusion of their studies.
