Masters Fellowships in Public Health and Tropical Medicine by Wellcome Trust UK.

This scheme strengthens scientific research capacity in developing countries, by providing support for junior researchers to gain research experience and high-quality research training at Masters degree level.

Research projects must be in the area of public health or tropical medicine, aimed at understanding and controlling human and animal diseases of local, national or global health importance.

Some fundamental biomedical studies are acceptable, but projects focused solely on in vitro or animal model studies will not normally be considered under this scheme.

The trust is particularly interested in requests for research training support in the social sciences, demography, health economics, medical statistics and vector biology.

This fellowship is part of a series of career awards aimed at building sustainable capacity in areas of research that have the potential for increasing health benefits for people and their livestock in developing countries.
