The Shuri Fellowship: Bursaries for FCI Membership

Applications have now closed for the 2021 round of bursaries. Shortlisting is currently ongoing by the FCI team. Do join the Network to hear about future opportunities !

The Shuri Network and the Faculty of Clinical Informatics are pleased to announce a second joint venture to encourage and support women from minority ethnic groups who are Shuri members. The Shuri Network will provide 20 members (clinical and non-clinical) and 10 student members with a bursary to cover the cost of a year’s membership of the Faculty of Clinical Informatics.
Eligibility Criteria:
To be eligible for the bursary, you must:
• be (or identify as) a female and be from a minority ethnic background
• be a UK resident
• be a member of the Shuri Network
• currently work in the field of digital health or social care and/or use technology in your daily work within health and social care.

Our Fellowship programme includes offering bursaries to join the FCI. We were delighted to welcome our first group of Shuri Fellows in November 2020 and have been delighted to see them flourish as a result including winning places on the NHS Digital Academy programme, offering shadowing opportunities to help other women and speaking at national digital events such as Rewired and HETT.
