International Master’s Fellowships 2019 (Wellcome Trust)

Deadline: 16 April 2019.

Wellcome Trust

This scheme offers nationals of low- and middle-income countries the opportunity to receive training at Master’s degree level. Your research proposal should be within Wellcome Trust's science remit and focus on a health priority in a low- or middle-income country.

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:

  • a basic salary (determined by your host organisation)
  • personal removal expenses
  • research management and support costs
  • research expenses, directly related to your proposal


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).

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.

Deadline: 16 April 2019.
