The Africa London Nagasaki Scholarship Fund has been set up to support African scientists building a career in infectious disease research.
The scholarship will allow African researchers to undertake an MSc in a subject relevant to the control of infectious disease in the developing world at either the Institute of Tropical Medicine, Nagasaki University, Japan (NEKKEN) or at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, London, UK (LSHTM). Successful applicants will receive a maximum of US$50,000 each to cover tuition fees, travel and living expenses. The fund will support up to four scholarships per year.
Applicants must be of African nationality and normally be resident in sub-Saharan Africa. They must have a first or upper second class BSc degree (or equivalent) in a relevant area and will usually have at least two years prior research experience. Candidates who apply to study in Japan must have a medical qualification and at least two years of clinical experience.
More details about the nature of the scholarship fund, eligibility criteria and on how to apply can be found on www.alnscholarshipfund.org
It is a good opportunity for Africans, however, can it include also lower second class BSc degree since study environment in some of these African Universities are not advantageous for studies especially Sciences. otherwise am willing to apply next academic year and I have got Lower second class BSc in Medical Laboratory Science and Health Services Management.
