For those of you who are involved in the world of health and want to continue your Masters in the field of health both at home and abroad, but with minimal research experience, the health scholarship program offered by Wellcome can be taken into consideration.
Wellcome is an independent global charity based in the UK with one that improves health for everyone.
This year they re-opened scholarships through the International Masters Fellowships in two periods.
Wellcome Postgraduate Health Scholarships include an allowance of unbeatable value.
If lectures and research are conducted in the UK (other than London), an allowance of £ 16,000 per year, if the Masters health program takes place in London, is an allowance of £ 18,000 per year.
However, if the lectures and research take place outside the UK, for example in Indonesia, the allowance given is to match the needs of life in the country or can be asked to the organization overseeing related research activities.
In addition to living allowances, the scholarships provided also cover travel costs, for example airplane tickets for departure and return, and tuition and research fees according to the rate of each campus.
The total value of each scholarship awarded by Wellcome to selected candidates is £ 120,000 (± IDR 2.1 billion).
