Three scholarships are offered to support the training and development of the next generation of leaders in global health and strengthen the capacity of health systems and health-related research in Africa.
These highly competitive scholarships are available to applicants intending to study on a one-year, full-time, London-based (face-to-face) MSc programme at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM).
Three scholarships are available for the 2021-22 academic year. Each scholarship will cover:
tuition fees, including any mandatory field trip fees; and
a tax-free stipend (living allowance) of GBP 17,400.00.
To be eligible for these scholarships, applicants must:
be nationals of, and resident in, countries in sub-Saharan Africa; and
intend to return to sub-Saharan Africa on completion of their MSc year at LSHTM; and
confirm that they would not otherwise be able to pay for the proposed programme of study by submitting the supplementary questions form; and
meet LSHTM’s minimum English language requirements; and
hold a first degree at either a first or upper second-class equivalency level; and
hold an offer of admission for 2021-22 for one of LSHTM’s 19 London-based MSc programmes of study.
Preference will be given to applicants who demonstrate (in their application documentation) the potential to make significant contributions to public health and/or health-related research in Africa.
