2020-21 Mansfield Aders and Avebury Memorial Fund

This award is an amalgamation of two awards: the Mansfield Aders Scholarship and the Avebury Memorial Fund.

  • Dr Walter Mansfield Aders, Economic Biologist to the Government of Zanzibar, died in 1934. A bequest to the School endowed a scholarship in medical entomology and parasitology, which was known as the ‘Mansfield Aders Scholarship’.
  • The Avebury Memorial Fund was a subscription fund raised to provide a memorial for Lord Avebury (1834-1913) who was the Vice Chancellor of the University of London from 1872 to 1880. The award was used for scholarships or research, especially in entomology.

This full-time one year studentship provides full tuition fees (at the UK/EU rate), including mandatory field trip fees.

Eligibility for funding

This funding opportunity is open to all applicants who hold:

How to apply

To be considered for this funding, applicants should submit an MSc Online Application for either of the eligible MSc courses, along with all necessary supporting documentation, by the funding application deadline. There is no separate scholarship application process – all eligible candidates will be considered for this funding.

For scholarship purposes, applications submitted without all the necessary supporting documents are considered incomplete. Any applications for study that do not have all the necessary supporting documents at the scholarship deadline will be considered incomplete and therefore ineligible for this funding.

Due to the introduction of a GBP 50.00 application fee at LSHTM, applicants are advised to apply early to allow time for this payment to be processed. Until the payment is processed applicants will be unable to submit an application for study.  We would therefore recommend that applicants for this funding apply for their study/programme by 8 April 2020 in order to ensure that there are no processing delays which could impact on meeting the scholarship deadline. 

Please note that if you are applying for admission to LSHTM and are accepted, you will be asked to pay a deposit within 28 days. If you are applying for a scholarship at LSHTM, please email the Admissions team within this 28 day period, specifying the name of this scholarship and the expected decision date. This must be repeated for every scholarship for which you are applying. The admissions team will then apply an extension to the deposit deadline to match the decision deadline of the scholarship.

If you have any queries about the application process, scholarship requirements, or application deadline, please contact our Scholarships team:

Please note that if you are successful in obtaining an award, you must agree to abide by the relevant terms and conditions. Acceptance of the award will be taken of acceptance of the terms and conditions too.


Applications and all necessary supporting documents must be received by 23:59 (BST) on Wednesday 15 April 2020.

The successful applicant will be notified of the outcome before 31 May 2020.
