TDR Postgraduate Training Scholarships for Master of Public Health


The BRAC James P. Grant School of Public Health (BRAC JPGSPH) at BRAC University in Dhaka, Bangladesh, is pleased to announce a Call for Applications for the award of TDR Postgraduate Training Scholarships for one- year Master of Public Health (MPH) 2020-21 programme beginning in January 2020.

Taught in English, the MPH Programme is a 12-month full-time programme which promotes problem-based experiential learning.

This full scholarship is supported by TDR, the Special Programme for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases, hosted by the World Health Organization in Geneva, Switzerland.

Candidates and residents in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) of WHO South-East Asia and Western Pacific Regions are eligible to apply.


The training will focus on courses relevant to a career in implementation research.

Implementation research is a growing field that supports the identification of health system bottlenecks and approaches to address them, and is particularly useful in low- and middle- income countries (LMICs) where many health interventions do not reach those who could benefit from them.

The goal of this scheme is to enhance graduate training capacity and boost the number and quality of researchers in LMICs.

Further information on implementation research.

The scholarship recipients will conduct their Thesis/Summative Learning Project (SLP) on implementation research on infectious diseases of poverty, including neglected tropical diseases, malaria and tuberculosis, in Bangladesh.

Recipients will be enrolled as postgraduate students.

The fellows will be required to register on the TDR Global platform designed to provide networking opportunities for all TDR alumni and stakeholders.
