Before 4 June 2018, this scheme was called Master’s Fellowships in Public Health and Tropical Medicine.

  • Career stage:

Postgraduate training

  • Where your host organisation is based:

Low- or middle-income countries

  • Type of researcher:

Public health

  • Level of funding:

£120,000 including salary, studentship stipend, fees and research expenses

  • Duration of funding:

30 months (12 months taught Master’s course and 18 months research project)

  • Who can apply :

You can apply for an International Master’s Fellowship if:

You must:

  • hold a clinical or non-clinical undergraduate degree in a relevant subject
  • be at an early stage in your career with limited research experience (but you must have demonstrated interest in, or aptitude for, research).
  • Your research proposal :

Your research proposal should be within our science remit and focus on a health priority in a low- or middle-income country.

When we consider your application, we’ll look at the:

  • quality and importance of your research question(s)
  • feasibility of your approach to solving these problems
  • suitability of your choice of research environments
  • suitability of the taught Master of Science (MSc) course you select – it should take place at a recognised centre of excellence and provide you with training that will complement your research project.
  • Who can’t apply :

You can’t apply if you’re:

We wouldn’t usually expect you to apply if you already have a Master’s.

  • What’s expected of your host organisation :

You must be based at an eligible host organisation in a low- or middle-income country for the research project. When your host organisation submits your application, they must agree to provide the space and resources you’ll need from the start date through to the end date of your award.

  • Sponsor and supervisor :

You should give careful thought to your choice of sponsor and supervisor. Your sponsor should:

  • hold an established post for the duration of the fellowship
  • have an ongoing research programme
  • have a strong track record in research, training and mentorship
  • provide you with guidance during the application process and fellowship.

Your sponsor should not expect you to spend more than eight hours a week on non-research activities (eg clinical duties, teaching or administration).

Your sponsor’s support and mentorship should be part of a longer-term commitment to help you achieve your career aspirations.

You should also identify a supervisor who will be responsible for the day-to-day supervision of your research project. We expect you to identify additional supervisors for each period that you spend outside your host organisation, including your taught course.

You can nominate your sponsor as a supervisor, if appropriate.

An International Master’s Fellowship is for 30 months, unless you want to hold it on a part-time basis.

The first 12 months should be dedicated to doing a taught Master of Science (MSc) course at a recognised centre of excellence anywhere in the world.

The following 18 months is for your research project at an eligible organisation in a low- or middle-income country.

An award of £120,000 provides support for:

  • travel costs (eg outward and return airfares)
  • a stipend

If your taught course or training is in the UK, you can use £15,000 a year (outside London) or £17,000 a year (Greater London) to cover the cost of your stipend. If your course or training is outside the UK, you should check living costs with your prospective training organisation.

  • approved tuition fees, according to the rate charged by the training organisation.

We support distance learning taught Master’s degrees.

If your stipend is liable for tax in the country you’re based in, you can use the funds to cover the taxed amount.
