2019 Wellcome Trust International Master’s Fellowships
Deadline: August 30, 2019.
This scheme offers nationals of low- and middle-income countries the opportunity to receive training at Master’s degree level.
You can apply for an International Master’s Fellowship if:

- your proposed research focuses on a health priority in a low- or middle-income country
- you have sponsorship from an eligible host organisation in a low- or middle-income country.
- 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).
The support includes:
1. 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.
2. Travel costs (eg outward and return airfares)
3. Approved tuition fees, according to the rate charged by the training organisation.
4. They support distance learning taught Master’s degrees.
5. If your stipend is liable for tax in the country you’re based in, you can use the funds to cover the taxed amount.
