Students with the talent and attitude to become the health leaders of tomorrow should be given the opportunity to realise their potential, regardless of their background or financial status.
We are acutely aware of the challenges faced by many students in finding the necessary funding to study at the School. Regrettably many potential students are forced to give up their offer of a place because they cannot secure the necessary funding.
Your gift to the School’s scholarship fund ensures that we can continue to educate the public health leaders of tomorrow.
“Without my scholarship I would never have been able to study at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine and learn from the most experienced and respected scientists in the world. In developing countries, those who are involved in public health usually are not able to afford the costs to study at such a prestigious university."
Marzieh Katibeh received a scholarship to study MSc Public Health for Eye Health
“Contributions from London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine alumni are huge. Leaders in public health, science, new health systems and economics are coming out of the school in droves.”
Dr Joel Breman, Alumnus and Senior Scientist Emeritus, Fogarty International Center of the U.S. National Institutes of Health
“South Sudan.....has severe shortages of skilled doctors trained in investigating and managing tropical diseases. Though the government encourages doctors for postgraduate studies, they don’t support them financially due to the region’s political instability.”
