Supporting the researchers of the future through EXSEL Scholarships
Heart Research UK has always been proud to encourage researchers of the future and each year, through the Excellence in Scholarship, Enterprise and Leadership (EXSEL) programme, we aim to give £30,000 to fund two outstanding undergraduate medical students at the University of Leeds.
Heart Research UK has sponsored the Leeds EXSEL programme for more than ten years which is a unique and innovative scholarship scheme that harnesses academic excellence by nurturing students who have research ambitions.
EXSEL gives talented medical students the valuable opportunity to be involved in research projects, and receive mentorship and training in research techniques from eminent research leaders. This experience helps them to become the experts of tomorrow and contribute to research into the prevention, treatment and cure of heart disease in the future.
