We want to improve health for everyone by helping great ideas to thrive. That's why we support thousands of curious, passionate researchers all over the world.
We do this by offering a wide range of funding schemes, including our schemes that support careers in research. We offer funding at key career stages. Most of our grantholders get funding from a range of sources during their career, not just from Wellcome.
There are exciting career opportunities in research. Some of today's jobs – for example in health informatics, advanced brain imaging and computational biology – didn’t exist five years ago.
As careers in research continue to change, researchers will remain at the heart of our strategy.

For people who have, or are about to finish, an undergraduate degree, and want to go on to do a Master's or PhD.
