Update on Public Health and Tropical Medicine Fellowships

Wellcome’s fellowships for early to intermediate career researchers from low- or middle-income countries (LMICs) are being relaunched.

The schemes are being renamed as the International Master’s, Training and Intermediate Fellowships.

We've also updated the scope of the schemes to align with our science remit and strategy.

The International Master’s Fellowship will now have a fixed budget limit of £120,000, including salary, stipend, fees and research costs.

These changes follow a recent review and our aim is to attract a broader group of scientists with more diverse research backgrounds.

What we’re looking for in applications

The eligibility and suitability criteria for the fellowships remain unchanged – they are open to both clinical and non-clinical research scientists:

  • who are nationals of an LMIC
  • who propose to work in an LMIC
  • whose research focuses on a health priority in those settings.

How to apply and deadlines

Full details about eligibility and how to apply are available on the new scheme pages from today, 4 June 2018.
