Application Process & Form

Trainees must confirm on their application form that they have had approval from both their Educational Supervisor, and their local Training Programme Director. They must also confirm that they have not had anything other than satisfactory outcomes at previous ARCP reviews and that they can travel to fulfill the requisite needs of that particular scholarship.

For each programme, the marks available will be doubled for each area specifically relevant to that post. For instance, if a trainee is applying for the sustainability scholarship, then the marks from the sustainability criteria section will be doubled when the score is considered for this programme alone. Therefore trainees will end up with an individual score for each programme that they apply to.

Total final scores will then be used to rank potential scholars, and these will be awarded according to best fit across the scheme according to programme score and preference of the individual posts. Patch education and leadership posts will be allocated first. Unused posts may be transferred to other scholarship programmes (depending on demand) to maximise fill rates.



The panel chairs will score each written application form against the designated performance criteria. The score from this process will be used to draw up the shortlist, if successful in being shortlisted you will receive an invite to interview, if unsuccessful in being shortlisted you will be informed by email. 


Scholarships will be awarded on a score taken from the combination of those awarded from the application and for the interview. Interview panels will be made up of a two-person panel of Faculty or lay members of the School of Primary Care. The interview panel Chair will be different from the shortlisting Chair to ensure no prior knowledge of the application form at the interview.

Each candidate will sit a competency based interview.
