Wellcome Trust Master’s Studentship in MSc Public Health.

The London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) is inviting applications for the 2023-24 Wellcome Trust (Humanities and Social Sciences) Master’s Studentship in MSc Public Health.  Two studentships will be available for students following a humanities or social science pathway through the MSc in Public Health.

The award aims to build an influential and diverse population of talented researchers in the humanities and social sciences to improve the understanding of human health. Candidates will be expected to be planning a career in health-related humanities or social science research.

The studentships will support: 

  • Tuition fees at the Home (UK) full-time fee rate for one year, and
  • Tax-free stipend of GBP 19,500.00, paid out to the awardee directly in 12 monthly instalments, and
  • Expenses for MSc project fieldwork of up to GBP 1,000.00.

The successful student will be required to follow a humanities and social science ‘pathway’ through the MSc Public Health degree. This will involve taking modules in humanities and social science disciplines and using one or more of these approaches in the MSc project.
