Richard Steevens’ Scholarship
Funded by the HSE, the Dr Richard Steevens’ Scholarship gives Irish SpRs an opportunity to train abroad in subspecialties and specialised skills for which training in the Republic of Ireland is limited or unavailable.
The scholarship is designed to support training in novel areas of medicine that will enrich the Irish health service. Winners of the scholarship receive funding from the HSE equivalent to their current point on the SpR salary scale. The minimum period funded is three months, the maximum is one year.
The scholarship is open to SpRs who are within two years of CSCST. If you win a scholarship, you must complete the period of funded training within the duration of your HST programme and prior to the award of a CSCST.
A call for applications normally goes out in October of each year. We will let you know when applications open and send you information on how to apply.
