The John Snow Anaesthesia Intercalated BSc Awards 2016


The deadline for this year's round of John Snow Anaesthesia Intercalated BSc Awards was 5 pm on Thursday 31 March 2016. Awards were offered by the Association of Anaesthetists of Great Britain & Ireland (AAGBI)/Anaesthesia, the British Journal of Anaesthesia (BJA)/Royal College of Anaesthetists (RCoA), the Obstetric Anaesthetists' Association (OAA) and the Neuroanaesthesia & Critical Care Society of Great Britain and Ireland (NACCSGBI). Applications will be sent for review and we will endeavour to contact all applicants and their supervisors by the end of May 2016.



  • The scheme has been designed to encourage medical student interest in anaesthesia and its related disciplines
  • The AAGBI/Anaesthesia, BJA/RCoA and OAA are offering awards of £2,000 and the NACCSGBI is offering one award of £1,000
  • Each institution can submit a maximum of four applications so some coordination between supervisors will be required
  • Awards go to the student and not the supervisor/institution and are meant to contribute to living costs. Project running costs will be funded by the supervisor/institution
  • Assessment criteria: (1) quality of the student, (2) quality of the research project and (3) supervisor and teaching environment. We will NOT be providing detailed feedback to applicants
  • Applications should be submitted for projects that have not yet commenced and applicants may only apply for one funding stream
  • Funding should be acknowledged in any publications (i.e. Funded by AAGBI/Anaesthesia, BJA/RCoA, OAA or NACCSGBI via the NIAA as indicated in the award letter) and a final report will be required
  • Depending on uptake, intercalaters may be asked to present their work at a meeting.

    These awards are annual, so if your department has missed the deadline for 2016 please do consider applying again next year.
