MSc Community Eye Health & MSc Control of Infectious Diseases Scholarships: The Shared Scholarship Scheme is a joint initiative between the Commonwealth Scholarship Commission (with funding from DFID), and UK universities, to support scholarships for students from developing Commonwealth countries who would not otherwise be able to study in the United Kingdom.

The award is only offered to applicants for the MSc Community Eye Health and the MSc Control of Infectious Diseases.

Scholarship Applicants Eligibility Criteria:

Applicants should:

  • be nationals of (or permanently domiciled in) a Commonwealth developing country, Rwanda and not currently be living or studying in a developed country.
  • hold a first degree at either first or upper second class level.
  • be sufficiently fluent in English to pursue the course.
  • have not previously studied for one year or more in a developed country.
  • not be employed by a government department (at national level) or a parastatal organisation (employees of universities are normally acceptable, however).
  • be willing to confirm that they will return to their home country as soon as their period of study is complete.
  • are themselves, or through their families, unable to pay to study in the UK.
  • hold an offer of admission for either one of the eligible course at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine

    Candidates should first apply for their chosen course at LSHTM as only applicants with an offer of admission will be eligible for the Shared Scholarship awards.

    The awards include:

  • Air fares to and from London
  • Tuition fees
  • Maintenance allowance of £1,091 per month (as at July)
  • A grant of up to £225 to cover dissertation costs - £200 for study travel

    No additional allowances are paid for spouses or other dependants.
