AGC/GVS Grant Program

American Gynecological Club / Gynaecological Visiting Society Fellowship

Through generosity of the American Gynecological Club and the Gynaecological Visiting Society of Great Britain, the RCOG is able to offer up to £2,000 Travel Grant to an individual to visit and gain knowledge from a specific centre offering new techniques of clinical management within O&G.  This is a reciprocal rotational program in which a UK-based physician is selected in an even year to visit the United States, and a US-based physician is selected in an odd year to visit the United Kingdom.


Up to £2,000 (payable in USD for U.S. applicants).

Note:  This award will be given in the form of an unrestricted educational grant.  The grant recipient will be responsible for any associated tax liability and accounting.
