Deadline 1 July. The BRAC James P. Grant School of Public Health at BRAC University in Dhaka is pleased to announce a Call for Applications for the award of TDR Postgraduate Training Scholarships for a one-year Master of Public Health (MPH) 2020-21 programme beginning in January 2020. Taught in English, the MPH Programme is a 12-month full-time programme which promotes problem-based experiential learning.
The scholarship recipients will conduct their Thesis/Summative Learning Project (SLP) on implementation research on infectious diseases of poverty, including neglected tropical diseases, malaria and tuberculosis, in Bangladesh. Recipients will be enrolled as postgraduate students.
Implementation research is a growing field that supports the identification of health system bottlenecks and approaches to address them and is particularly useful in low- and middle- income countries where many health interventions do not reach those who need them the most. The goal of this scheme is to enhance postgraduate training capacity and boost the number of researchers in low- and middle- income countries and their contribution to improved health programme performance.
Only applicants from low- and middle-income countries of the WHO South-East Asia and Western Pacific Regions are eligible.
Complete information about this call, eligibility and application process is available here.
